District Jamboree 2016 “Fatherland”
Introduction to Jamboree diary:
Homeland is a country to which it belongs my heart!
If someone loves his homeland, and is far away from it, they feel a longing for her. Homeland is the place where they lived, my great-grandparents, grandparents and the whole family. Homeland is a country’s childhood. Homeland can mean something else for everyone. For one it may be a memory of the family home, and for another attachment to the language. Who else can also believe that the home of a nation, or even a cultural circle. For me, homeland is a place on earth where I was not born, where I feel safe and attached. I can always come back and be accepted with open arms. They lived here my ancestors – great grandfather, grandfather. Homeland is also a culture, by which I was raised, I passed it from generation to generation, created by long years. Every person should be aware of what is his homeland. My homeland is Poland. Very important, because she gave me a home and education. Let’s take care and Let us take care of our homeland and its further development.
To the homeland, they return my dreams,
To the homeland, I would like to go again.
I would like a quiet angle of a dream. /
The Motherland not only a dream. /bis
