Honorable Commander of the peacekeeping force in Kosovo, KFOR, General Erhard Drews,
Honorable representatives of the institutions of the Republic of Kosovo,
Distinguished guests,
Citizens of the Republic of Kosovo,


This night unites us all: the good-willed people of our country and our friends, around our shared values – solidarity and help, understanding and respect among people, among the citizens of the Republic of Kosovo.

This charity concert, which has gathered us with our friends, the ones who serve to provide a safer environment, is a proof of the continuation of our traditions which have made our country great.

Building bridges between people and solidarity is an every day work and we are witnessing that aid to people in need is the highest human virtue that makes us stronger, citizens of hope and faith.

As Mother Teresa, the great humanist of Albanian origin, used to say: “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

Tonight from here, we are sending a message of peace and understanding to all the free and equal citizens, that in the Republic of Kosovo they have guaranteed rights, freedom of movement and equal responsibility to lead a respectful life.

Let this charity concert serve us as an additional opportunity. Let us demonstrate that We the Citizens, can and want to help each other and that we want to build a better future for all of us.

We do this together through solidarity and by sharing each other’s concerns, by understanding people’s destinies, by extending hands towards each other, because support for each other confirms the conscious and organized nature of our society: a society embracing solidarity and civic responsibilities, while reaching out to all people in need with compassion.

Let us return the smile and bliss to people’s faces.
Let us warm people’s hearts.
Let us enlighten people’s souls.
Together we are strong.
Together there are no challenges that we cannot face together.
Thank you!
