Sometimes we must leave, in order to arrive.
Sometimes we must go up, to know we belong on the ground.
Sometimes we bow, to know why we should stand.
Sometimes you have to be apart, to know you belong together.
Sometimes we need to see something small, to know what is great.
Sometimes to know what is right, we need to see what is wrong.
Because sometimes, you have to see, to believe.

  1. Hi Naim,
    I am a German journalist who joined the Antonov225 to KUL in May. I work vor Deutsche Welle TV and will make a series about the trip. I really would love to use your youtube video of the Antonov arriving in KUL for my series? Thanks for getting in contact with me.

    Thanks so much! Cheers from Berlin
