What a historic day it is!
At 3pm today Kosovo declared its Independance from Serbia. Tirana is filled with flags and the center is closed for all traffic. Even in the middle of the afternoon fireworks are going off. It's pretty exciting to be living here at this time. I pray the people of Kosovo will now be able to live their lives in peace and joy, and in celebration of who they are as a people.
My personal philosophy tends towards unity and the oneness of all humanity, but when the history of a country is filled with so much pain, there comes a point when separation is the only way to healing. It's similar to the point in a marriage when there is no other choice but to divorce. And so this is what is happening today.
Let's hope that the split will be smooth and fair to both sides.
