While strolling through the park one day

SPC C and I were outside the gate recently, and we happened upon a sight I'd heard of, but hadn't seen before.

It was dedicated the same day our Transfer of Authority took place, I believe.

The statue itself is over eight feet tall.

The people here -- the ethnic Albanians, anyway -- just LOVE Americans, and really love him.

In fact, most of the locals here are so enamored of the U.S., that SPC C and I have driven through some small villages over here where there were more American flags flying than there would be in a comparable neighborhood in many American cities.

Odd, that.

Blessings and peace to one and all,

Fr. Tim, SJ

I'm glad to know that we have made some friends, somewhere. Thanks for the report on that attitude where you are!
