Re: New Slovak anthem?, Flash news briefs, May 3 - 9, Vol 10, No 17

Keep the anthem as it is, for it is part of our history. My parents, who are deceased, were born in Slovakia.

My sister Mary, who was also born in Slovakia, feels this is part of our heritage. Mary came to America with my Mother Anna when she was six years old, and the anthem brings back many memories, some good, some sad.
