My Fellow Molossians, Greetings.
2017 is a banner year indeed. This year heralds our 40th anniversary as a
nation, four decades of sovereignty, of accomplishments, of triumphs and of
growth. Four decades to take Molossia from a few scraps of paper - a few
notes - to reality, a real, tangible nation. We have accomplished so much
as a nation over the past forty years, beginning with a dream and an idea
and culminating in the state we have today. To be sure, there have been
setbacks and the struggle to move from vision to reality is ongoing.
Molossia is small, compared to the giant nations dominating this planet, but
our hearts are strong and our dream is powerful. We are not daunted by the
task of building a nation nor by the obstacles before us. We endeavor daily
and strive mightily forward to further our dream. At times this dream seems
unobtainable, and our resolve may falter. But we always continue to move
forward, always drawing that resolve from deep within our souls, knowing
that our struggles are not in vain but are part and parcel of who we are and
what we do. The steel within each of us could not be as strong without the
setbacks that temper us. Victories and defeats go hand in hand in the
creation of any invention and ours is a very special invention indeed. It
is the establishment of our own nation, our own home upon this planet. No
other goal can be as lofty yet we have risen to the challenge time and
again. For forty years we have struggled and built, and the magnificent
result lies before us all. An amazing nation, the most special on earth,
Molossia. And the work continues. Having built this nation over the past
four decades, we will not rest upon our laurels. The work is not done, and
we are the people to continue it. Within all of us burns the unquenchable
desire to make this nation the greatest on earth, and today, tomorrow and
for the next forty years and beyond we will labor together to make and keep
it that way. Molossia is the future and together we will work to make that
future the utmost for all Molossians.
God Bless You,
Long Live Molossia!
