Every time I go to the movie theater with my friends they bring out this commercial to promote Southeast Europe and their goal to join the EU. It’s a wonderful commercial and what it says is so true!! Eastern Europe feels like a completely different continent, yet European history screams throughout these nations as well. I love my European roots for this exact reason. We are so diverse, so different, yet everywhere I go I can see and feel a similarity that connects Europeans like only us Europeans can do. Today, for a change, I’m proud to be European!
I might be one of the first as many Dutch believe we should focus inside our borders more than we should on Europe. Whatever, I don’t care. Look at this commercial and tell me what you see! If you’ve lived in Europe for even a small while I think you know exactly what I mean! Such different cultures, yet so many connections. Once the euro crisis is over, our future looks bright!
Ow and to the people in the European Union board, let these countries in! I’ve experienced so many good things from having other Eastern European countries join, you shouldn’t cut them short!
