 “State powers once left but a stump where there was once a powerful tree of our nation; we can now see our history and recognize who we once were through its rings; but our roots are deep and we are growing anew. Through a common goal we let free the sprouts from the shackles of the past so that we can grow great and be truly free. A dedication to 30 years of independence in Karosta, 1990-2020.“
