Reader Feedback:Cultural devotion recognised abroad

I would like to thank Mr Reynolds for this beautifully written article ("Christmas is Slovakia: Blessedly in hand" by Matthew J. Reynolds, Slovak Matters, Vol. 7, No.49, December 24 - January 13). I am a first-generation Slovak on both sides of my parents. I am a proud American, but my cultural background is a strong part of who I am and that is what is represented in this article. The Slovaks have been oppressed through the centuries, but with their strong Christian faith and cultural devotion, Slovakia has been able to survive and show others that its people should be recognised for their goodness and hospitality. Just remember that the first parachute was introduced by a Slovak during World War II and he was the one who had to have the courage to take that first leap. Thank-you for you taking this leap also by showing the Slovak people in a positive light. Wishing you the very best in the New Year.
