Rector Assoc. Prof. Monkevičius' Greeting for March 11th
March 11th, on the occasion of the Restoration of Lithuania's Independence, MRU Rector Assoc. Prof. Algirdas Monkevičius greeted MRU students, professors, academics and staff.
Dear MRU Academic Community members,
If we read in history books about the events surrounding Lithuania's declaration of Independence - Feb. 16th, then the March 11th Restoration of Independence Day is something we know about as witnesses ourselves.
We are the ones, with our meaningful actions, having a unique chance to become part of the unending creation of the restored state and to be part of those who are strengthening its foundations.
It's not only an opportunity, but also a huge responsibility and challenge.
Greeting you on this Restoration of Independence Day, I invite you to be proud of your small daily victories.
We have done much, but truly we can do more, if we ourselves will truly believe and seek to do so.
--Rector Assoc. Prof. Dr. Algirdas Monkevičius
