    “Although I’m just a writing person, the photos and videos are like 21. Century catechism for me. Using them, we can transfer our values, messages and the logical and simple standpoint in our constitution’s preamble to others: why we exist and go on? Fortunately, Mark Zuckerberg has created a channel for the world (the Facebook) which allows us to share much more of information about ourselves and also to get it from all over the world.”

I was supposed to be there for 1 day in order to get more acquainted with EATA. During the day I met with Krista and Hedi. At one point I realised that having a captivating conversation about NATO, the association, present, past and the future that 6 hours had passed in a blink of an eye. With the everlasting conversation I presented a few ideas that could be realised within the NATO’s 70th anniversary.
