Love Heals

By Paulo Coelho

I read in the newspaper that a child in Brasilia (capital of Brazil) was brutally beaten by his parents.  As a result, the child lost all body movements and could no longer speak.

At a military base hospital where the child was staying, a nurse everyday said to the him: “I love you.  Don’t you ever forget it”.

Three weeks later, the child was able to start moving his body again.  Four weeks later the child started speaking and smiling.

The nurse never gave any interviews and the paper didn’t publish her name.  But here I would like to make the story known so we never forget that love heals. 

Paulo Coelho is the author of The Alchemist which has sold more than 65 million copies, becoming one of the best-selling books in history, and has been translated into more than 67 languages, winning the Guinness World Record for most translated book by a living author.
