One quote and one story for you, to make you understand why Skanderbeg is our national hero.

Quote: “It wasn’t me who brought you freedom. I found it here among you.”

Story: Skanderbeg came to the center, surrounded by the leaders of twelve fiefs of Eagles’ Land, carrying two bundles of cranberry stick. He dropped them on the ground and told a little boy to break one bundle. Without saying a word, the child untied a bundle and started breaking the stick one after the other.

Skanderbeg then spoke to the leaders. “Who of you wants to try to break the whole bundle together”. Leke Zekaria rose. He put the bundle to his knee. The sticks bent, but they did not break. He tried and tried but with no success. “You see”, said Skenderbeg. “An example of how strong and unbreakable we will be, if we stand united, together as one.
