In his remarks, President Begaj focused on respecting all those who sacrificed for freedom: “Pal Zefi, Skënder Daja, Dervish Bejko, Hajri Pashai, Dashnor Kazazi, Jorgji Pepa, and many, many others that I am not mentioning, are only some of those names who made their sacrifice to show that even after death, hope does not die!” – President Begaj said, further adding that: “They are part of a history that has not fully come to light yet, and which has a heavy impact on the future of our country. The heroes of Spaç and others like them, serve as a reminder to all of us that the fight for freedom is a permanent fight that requires our unwavering commitment and vigilance. A reminder that the power to shape our destinies lies within each of us.”

President Begaj further said that: “Let’s build bridges of understanding, compassion and empathy, knowing that through these spiritual connections we can create a brighter future for generations to come. But let’s start by becoming aware of our past and by morally separating good from evil. What matters most is to build the future apologizing for the mistakes of the past, and breaking away entirely from the shadow of our nation’s darkest period.”
