Sincere congratulations to the organizers.

Note to me:
''Stay upstanding.
How will you with bent head beneath the stars?
Whichever way you go at the end waits death.
And everything ends with collapse.
And you will die.
And this world will die.
So stay upstanding.''
Alija Izetbegović, October 10, 2001
