Quote: "Extent is not created for today of course! Extent is created for the future of Karina. For her to see as an example that the resources to build what onces was a dream, that become a thought, and now is the reality. Is all in reaching hand. I dont want her to lose the sight of what humanity truly is. Building with your hands and with the people love most in this cruel world."
