Árpád János Potápi, the state secretary for ethnic Hungarians abroad, inaugurated a scouting monument in Gyergyószárhegy (Lăzarea), in northern Romania, on Saturday.
“The Hungarian nation is now getting stronger in 2021, the year of starting over,” Potápi said in his speech at the ceremony organised by the Hungarian Scout Association in Romania (RMCSSZ).
“It’s possible to bounce back from any difficult situation, but it requires work, faith and hope,” he said. “If we have these in our hearts, if we can do the work, and if we do whatever it takes, the Hungarian revival will become a reality.”
The monument was erected in front of the Gyergyószárhegy (Lăzarea) school to mark the 31st anniversary of the founding of the RMCSSZ.
At the ceremony, Potápi was presented with an award by the scout association.
