I will never forget last year. When in solitary confinement I had no information about you, and they did not let us talk in our best days of our life, our anniversary, even for few minutes. It was so hard that it was impossible to describe the love to interrogator. It is now a year from that day. I am facing a condition that an Arian, patriot, and freedom lover would face. I take your hand warmly, kiss them and bow toward your sacrifice. Remind that there were a lot of self-devoting women like you in our Arian history that stood and showed patience and resisted and helped their partners and created epic moments for the country. Certainly your and other women’s who are in the same condition patience is encouraging people. We have a responsibility about our heritage and have to be able to answer to the future generations, that our children could live long in prosperous land”.
