The Will Of Maickel

15 Aug 2012

Maickel Melamed was born in 1975 with a physical motor deficiency. In 2011 he ran the New York marathon. This year he will run in Berlin. Maickel has run five marathons in four years, when just one was supposedly impossible.

Maickel training indoors, B Roll:

“En ese momento cuando crees que no, es donde sigues. En ese momento donde todo te dice oscuridad, es donde tú crees en la luz así no la veas. Todo lo contrario: cuando no ves la luz, es cuando más la atraes."

“In that exactly moment when you think you can’t make it, you just have to keep going. That moment where everything says dark, is where you believe in light, even if you cannot see it. When you can’t see the light, is when you most attract it.”

Maickel training outdoors:

“Si a mí me dijeron que yo no iba a vivir, me dijeron que yo no iba a caminar, me dijeron que yo no iba a subir montañas, me dijeron que yo no iba a hablar bien y soy conferencista desde hace más de diez años.”

“I was told that I would die, that I would never walk, that I would never climb a mountain that I would never talk properly, and I have been speaking in lectures for more than 10 years.”

Maickel Melamed:

“A cada no le fuimos poniendo un sí, y ese es el sí que le queremos regalar a cada ser humano.”

“Instead of NO we say YES, and that YES is our gift to every single human being.”

Maritza de Melamed, Maickel's mother:

“Él, como dice su papá, como que se prueba y a la vez es algo como una función que él tiene una cosa que él tiene como un deber, cómo te puedo decir yo, como algo así que él mismo se lo ha propuesto.”

“He, as his father says, he (Maickel) tests himself, and at the same time it is like a duty he must accomplish, as I can tell you, he meets what he proposes.”

Maickel Melamed:

“Sentía que cada vez que yo hacía algo, que me llevaba más allá de mis propios límites, los límites de mi entorno también se expandían, entonces entendí que eso era quizá la diferencia que yo tengo para aportar.”

“I was feeling that every time that I’ve achieved something that took me beyond my limits, my limits were expanded as well, then I think that maybe that is the difference with what I have to give.”

Maickel training outdoors, B Roll:

“Y vivimos buscando nuestra diferencia y yo creo que esa es nuestra búsqueda primaria cuál es nuestra diferencia."

“We live looking for that which makes us different, I believe that this is our main basic quest, what sets us apart.”

Mr. and Mrs. Melamed, B Roll:

“Yo le diría a todos esos padres que tienen una situación como la que se me presentó a mí, de que..."

“I would to like say all those fathers who have a situation as I've been presented with Maickel, that...”

Alberto Melamed, Maickel's father:

“esos muchachos vinieron a esta vida por algo, y nosotros estamos en la obligación de darles todo el cariño y todo el apoyo que podemos darles para poderlos sacar adelante.”

“...this guy came into this life for something, and we are under the obligation to give them all the love and care, and all the support that we can, to keep them moving forward by themselves.”

Maickel training, B Roll:

“El entrenamiento es muy intenso, son seis días a la semana, aproximadamente tres horas y media diarias a veces más, hay largos de ocho horas y media de entrenamiento.”

“Training is quite intense, six days per week, almost four hours per day, but sometimes we reach almost nine hours.”

Maickel Melamed:

“Es un entrenamiento muy intenso diseñado específicamente para mi persona, cada ser humano es diferente.”

“Is a very tough training, specially designed for me, every human is different.”

Photos:
“Esto es dedicado a todos esos seres humanos que tienen esos sueños adentro y que están esperando una chispita para despertarlos e ir en búsqueda de ellos.”

“This is dedicated to those human beings that have dreams, for those who are waiting for something to spark their life, wake up and go for it.”

"There are mechanisms in the plan provided by Mr. Annan including the presence of both civilian monitors and others with weapons, etc, from powers and states among them some Security Council member states, in order to establish ceasefire even in the difficult areas in the coming period." The Syrian opposition figures stressed the need for a real international pressure from all sides, the United States, Russia and all the permanent members of the Security Council to achieve ceasefire and then to try to reach a political solution to the Syrian crisis.
They said that they didn’t want Syria to be a theatre for international conflicts and underscored the need for a united position from all the international sides to reach a solution regarding the Syrian crisis.

Cairo, Egypt | April 2, 2012

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas laid the founding stone for the new headquarters of the Palestinian embassy in New Cairo on Monday, April 2, in the presence of senior Egyptian and Palestinian officials.
Abbas said that the embassy would be as the Palestinian home in Egypt as it will include the home of the Palestinian ambassador, the home of the clerks of the embassy and the culture center which would be built under the supervision of Egypt’s Culture Ministry.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas:
"Paletine for Egypt is its strategic depth. Hence, this relation is based on love between us and our brothers in Egypt. We express this today by laying the founding stone for a Palestinian home, not only an embassy, because it will include the embassy, the ambassador's house, the employees' housing, a cultural center and others."

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Palestinian Ambassador to Egypt Barakt al-Farra:
"Today, our President lays the founding stone for our embassy on the land of Egypt. Soon, Egypt will lay the founding stone for its embassy on the liberated land of Palestine."

Abbas praised the Palestinian-Egyptian relations and stressed the joint history between the two peoples, especially the Egyptian efforts and struggle to support the Palestinian case.
Egyptian officials, including Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr and Culture Minister Shaker Abdel-Hamid stressed the deep-rooted relations between Egypt and Palestine and the historical connection between the two peoples.
SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) - Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr:
"This is a new brick for a longtime history of our relation and our mixed blood on the land of the most honorable fights. Allah willing, this will be the embassy of the state of Palestine that will be established on the rest of the occupied lands, with the honorable Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital city."

SOUNDBITE 4 (Arabic) - Egyptian Culture Minister Shaker Abdel-Hameed:
"We will do our best to establish a Palestinian cultural center that suits the status of Palestine and its embassy in Egypt. This is just a symbolic expression of our love, cordiality and permanent appreciation of Palestine. Palestinians are not just brothers for us and Palestine is not only Egypt's strategic depth, but it is part of Egypt's history, not only the past history but also the present and the future too."

Abbas, who arrived in Cairo Sunday on three-day official visit to Egypt, met with head of Egypt’s ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, where they discussed endeavors underway to end the inter-Palestinian division, in addition to the Middle East peace process and the bilateral relations between the two sides.

Cairo, Egypt | March 26, 2012

A delegation of the Egyptian Initiative to Support the Syrian Revolution, comprising political activists and party leaders, held talks on Monday, March 26, with China's Ambassador to Egypt Song Aiguo on China's official position on the Syrian crisis.

The media was prevented from covering the meeting, but the initiative members told reporters after the meeting that the Chinese Ambassador reaffirmed China's keenness on ending the ongoing violence in Syria, support for the mission of UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan, encouragement of dialogue and political solution for the Syrian crisis and rejection of foreign interference in the Syrian issue.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Basel Adel, liberal parliamentarian, Free Egyptians Party:
"We told the Chinese Ambassador that we as Egyptians are against the violence in Syria and against the regime of Bashar al-Assad. We support any initiative at the moment but at the same time we demand pressure on the regime of Bashar al-Assad to stop the violence. It is unreasonable that the whole world is talking about initiatives while violence and bloodshed are continuing and inhabited towns are being hit by mortar shells."

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Essam Shiha, Attorney, member of Al-Wafd Party:
"It's been a specific meeting that aims to push the Chinese government to exercise pressure on the Syrian government to stop the bloodshed in Syria, to provide assistance, to cooperate with the UN and to not use the Veto. We understand the Chinese position the rejects foreign interference in Syria because China is concerned that such interference leads to a sectarian fight inside Syria."

Members of the Egyptian Initiative to Support the Syrian Revolution held a similar meeting on Monday, March 19, with Russia's Ambassador to Egypt Serge Kerbetchenko over the Russian position on the Syrian crisis.

They said after the meeting that Russia also expressed support for a peaceful political solution in Syria and that Russia exercised pressure on the Syrian regime to cooperate with Annan.

Cairo, Egypt | March 19, 2012

Russia's Ambassador to Egypt Serge Kerbetchenko met on Monday, March 19, with members of the Egyptian initiative to Support the Syrian Revolution comprising political figures, party leaders and and parliamentarians and they held talks over the Russian position on the Syrian crisis.

The initiative members demanded Russian pressure on the Syrian regime to stop the bloodshed in Syria.

Russia's Ambassador Kerbetchenko said his country is keen on putting an end to the Syrian crisis and it works with the UN and the Arab League for a political solution for the issue.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Ibrahim Nawar, Democratic Front Party leader:
"Members of the Egyptian initiative to Support the Syrian Revolution demanded that the Russian government practice pressures on the regime of Bashar al-Assad to stop the bloodshed and protect the civilians in Syria. In fact, the reply that the Egyptian delegation got from the Russian Ambassador reaffirmed Russia's keenness on putting an end to the bloodshed in Syria."

Kerbetchenko affirmed that Russia supports Kofi Annan's mission at Syria, criticizing the Arab countries for withdrawing the monitoring mission and seeking military interference in Syria.

He revealed that Russia has previously pressured the Syrian government to sign the Arab League protocol to allow the monitoring mission and has recently encouraged the Syrian government to cooperate with Annan to end the ongoing violence.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Ibrahim Nawar, Democratic Front Party leader:
"The reply Annan got from the Syrian regime in the beginning was disappointing. The Russian Ambassador said that Moscow practiced pressures on the Syrian regime to change this response. Ambassador Kerbetchenko said that the Syrian regime's modified reply has already been sent to Mr. Kofi Annan and he's currently studying it."

UN and Arab League special envoy to Syria, former UN Chief Kofi Annan, started his mission in Syria on Saturday, March 8, and he described the initial response of the Syrian regime as "disappointing".

Russian Ambassador to Egypt said Russian pressure was why Annan received a more encouraging reply from Al-Assad's regime later on.

Annan sent a team of five UN experts to Syria on Monday, March 18, to work on the Syrian crisis.

The Ley Community is a drug rehabilitation centre in Yarnton, Oxfordshire.
They help men and women build new lives after addiction to drugs and alcohol.

I grew up in and around the south London area. At the age of 16 I started smoking crack cocaine and getting more into crime. I was hanging around with people a lot older than me, in big groups fighting a lot and committing a lot of crime, getting into a lot of trouble. Back then it was all about who was the maddest and who was the baddest.

I grew up around a lot of drugs and violence and back then I thought that was what it was all about, being the big hard man. This led me to spend a lot of my life in prison from the age of 16. When I was out there involved in all the madness I didn't care about anyone or anything, I was a mess. Through all this my partner, who I met when I was 16, stuck by me. I was being very violent, drinking too much all the time.

When I was 20 my son was born and I was in prison at the time and that hurt me but it was down to my own stupidity. I came out and tried to stay off drugs but I couldn't do it and in the end my partner left me and took my son and I went off and ended up in prison on a robbery charge looking at a few years locked up again. I'd just had enough of the lifestyle, the drugs and spending all my life locked up. I spoke to a drugs worker in the prison and they said what about a rehab. I thought I would give it a go. I went to court and the judge sent me here.

Coming to the Ley was strange after spending so much time in prison and putting on the hard man act all that time. Everyone here was so nice to me, kind, caring and helpful. I've been here a while and I'm getting used to things and learning a lot about myself, the real me. When you look at the people at the end of the programme you see the benefits and if you put in the work you will get there. I'm rebuilding my relationship with my partner of seven years who has never used drugs and my son who is three years old now.

Now I'm looking forward to the future and being a good father and having a good life, a clean life. I know here I will learn what I need to live that life, I'm done with my old life, I now see it was nothing but crap but I now know my future will be good. My family and people that know me and even I can see a change in me and it's a good change. I would say to anyone that really wants to sort their life out that this is the place.

At times it is not easy but it’s what we need. My future is now about getting a job and a nice little place to live, once I have done this programme, and being a proper family with my partner and my son and living a drug and crime free life. Just being happy and grateful for the things I've got and being a good father and to make sure my son doesn't go down the road I did. I grew up without my father but I'm now getting my life back and my son will grow up with his father there for him and I'm really happy I've got this chance to get my life together.
