Bucharest in photos. The city by night

I realized we shall celebrate soon 21 years from the Revolution.

I wonder somehow if people will celebrate, as some of them (unjustly) like to believe it was better before the change of regime. I just convinced myself that my co-nationals have a short memory - they forget easily, they do not learn from their mistakes, they do not plan the future.

One of the observations you make when reading Romanian history is that people in this space live in a continuous present, a place with no future nor past. Because I cannot possibly imagine how so many of us are eager to forget that more than one thousand perished for what we have now. How do we carry on their memory?
