Mrs. Hillary R. Clinton
Former U.S. Secretary of State
Chappaqua, New York
Dear Madam Secretary,
On behalf of The Pan-Albanian Federation of America VATRA (THE HEARTH), I take this opportunity to reach out to you at this time of great disappointment that is shared by tens of millions, including many Albanians here and in the homeland.
Albanians will never forget President Clinton’s historical decision that you fully supported, to save the Albanian people of Kosova from genocide and ethnic cleansing less than two decades ago. We have followed with great appreciation your continued friendship toward the Albanian people, who are perhaps the most pro-American by a long tradition.
We remember with gratitude your visit to Albania a few years ago and, speaking to the Parliament, you told all the members and leaders present that they had to work together for the interests of their country, regardless of party differences. You cited your own example of working with Obama, for America that you both loved, despite the harsh rhetoric of the electoral campaign. You proudly displayed that inspiring spirit of democracy again today, when you congratulated Donald Trump and wished him to be a successful President for all Americans!
We are confident that Albanians will always enjoy your continued friendship and that of President Clinton. God bless you and your family.
Yours with warm regards,
Dr. Gjon Buçaj,
President, The Pan-Albanian Federation of America Vatra (The Hearth) 2437 Southern Blvd Bronx, NY 10458

I very much appreciate the tone, the kindness, the gratitude and the historical correctness expressed in the letter of Dr. Buçaj to Secretary Clinton. He truly rapresents a voice of fairness and rationality at a time of such great and lamentable polarization that has given rise to regretably fanatic and divisive excesses. The Albanian people and the Albanian-Americans are capable of separating facts from politics and unquestionably recognize the blessings of the Clintons efforts, in America, in Kosova and in Albania. As time goes by, the achievements of President Clinton and General Clark will assume legendary proportions. Their firm, decisive and determined efforts restored freedom to the valiant Albanian people who call home the plains, valleys and mountains of Kosova. FREEDOM was a forbidden word for 600 interminable years of painful and even tragic foreign domination. Vatra has always been grateful to the American People, the Sons of the 1776 Revolution, for defending democracy and liberty both at home and abroad and especially in Albania and Kosova.
