Today is 9/11 an important date for USA and also important year for my country-Macedonia.This date was painful day for both countries.On 9/11 America was treacherously attacked by terrorists who cowardly hiding behind an Organization that propagate violence. Main goal of their attack were the World trade center buildings in New York and the Pentagon. Many of victims were ordinary people and among them were police officers and firefighters who bravely doing their job trying to save lives .The same year my country Macedonia was attacked by those same terrorists who mainly cast from Kosovo and killed innocent people, burning churches and killing Christian population. Like our American brothers, we have also passed in the greatest pain which united us as a nation together and defeat those who do not believe in democracy and living in what is called free world . 2001 was a good lesson for both countries,we were shoulder to shoulder together struggling under the same flag in Iraq and Afghanistan fighting for better future of the world. It was a pain and tragedy that united two nations that are geographically very far but ideologically very close . So as a Macedonian I want to my American friends and the entire American nation to say that Macedonia and Macedonians will forever be by your side in the fight for democracy,freedom and basic human rights . I personally want to express my respect for all the victims of that fateful day and let us never see such a thing, because I believe that no nation should pay such a tragic price. Rest in peace heroes. In joy and pain UNITED WE STAND!!!
