And Now Kosovo is Free

Wow. So the day has finally come. It’s almost hard to feel any one way about it, after nearly ten years. Maybe the knowledge of how much blood and terror, of how many blunders, tears, tragic mistakes, hopes, struggles, and dreams it took to make this a reality precludes any one feeling from encompassing the event.

Well, perhaps that is only the case for us outsiders who were there, or perhaps only for me—having been there a relatively short time and having mostly witnessed the aftermath of the worst part. The Albanian Kosovars, however, certainly seem to have no shortage of jubilation this morning.

Good for them. Here’s hoping it works out. Play nice, have fun, and make the most of it.
