On August 19th a birthday wish was electronically sent to President Clinton by VATRA’s Chairman Elmi Berisha as follows:
Dear President Clinton,
A new birthday for you means a whole new year for the Albanian community to show the gratitude and appreciation for your commitment to defend the freedom and liberties against the oppression and tyranny.
As the Albanian expression goes “Edhe 100!” (One hundred more years!)
Pan-Albanian Federation of America Vatra
In response, President Clinton sent a kind message to Mr. Elmi Berisha.
