representatives of the Church and politicians as well as the media, who
supported this humanitarian occasion organised by Mati Tatjana.
In this difficult moment for our people and country we must
show our love and solidarity for our people in Kosovo and Metohija, and take
care of everybody, especially children. We must fight for truth against
injustice, and with unification and solidarity against violence. These children,
who today live in terrible conditions in Kosovo and Metohija, are the security
of our subsistence and our future. This is why we have to be constantly beside
them, not just tonight but every day until we create conditions for normal life
of every child and every citizen in Kosovo and Metohija. We owe that to them, to
ourselves and to our ancestors. emphasised Crown Prince Alexander.
