Recently I watched Cloud Atlas - possibly one of the best movies of the moment. When Adam, a noble man took his wife to join the slave abolishment movement, his father - in - law tried to stop them by comparing their action to a drop in the ocean.

The 1st of December

For many of you, the 1st of December represents nothing but the first winter day. For Romanians, the 1st of December represents the National Day of Romanians all around the world. It is the day when Romanians from Moldova, Bucovina, Transylvania and Basarabia united under one single state: The Greater Romania, without the involvement of any political party implications or Government propaganda.  94 years has passed but the Romanian spirit did not dilute despite of the boarder changes on the map.IMG_1237.JPG
