Happy 20th!

Happy 20th Statehood Day to Czech Republic and Slovakia.  On January 1, 1993, Czechoslovakia's Velvet Divorce saw the establishment of two new countries - Czech Republic and Slovakia.

There is often debate about why the two nations split and if it was the best thing to do.  Would a united Czechoslovakia have been better off today than having two independent countries?  Perhaps a future post is in order about this but, for sure, not today.

The USA is only 236 years old which is nothing compared to some of the places I've seen in Europe.  Heck, I've been in churches that are older than my country.  Now that Czech Republic and Slovakia are 20 years old, the USA doesn't seem quite so young anymore.

Všechno nejlepší Česko!   Všetko najlepšie Slovensko!
