Aleksandra's note: Many things could be said in remembrance of the 78 day NATO bombing campaign against America's loyal ally Serbia that began on this day, March 24, in 1999 and lasted until June 10 of that spring. That is a springtime that the Serbians
both in the homeland and throughout the world will never forget. I'll let the world champion Novak Djokovic say it for so many of us.

Many thanks to Vera Dragisich for providing the English translation.

To never forget when NATO bombed Serbia 17 years ago on March 24, 1999 with these inspirational words from Serbian hero and legend Novak Djokovic:

"I was just a child in 1999 when NATO was destroying my country without any real basis. I swore to myself that I would defeat that same world in my own way and here I am today. That destruction did not destroy me, nor my people. They did not break our soul and we are yet joyful despite our problems. That is victory."
