This is from a friend of our daughter Becky. As Wayne and I read this we couldn't help but agree with it. The Finns are such wonderful people.
They have endured much and have learned a lot of tolerance and patience from that enduring!
We could all learn many things from them!
Hope you enjoy this as much as we did......this is in no way meant to offend anyone, but rather to praise such wonderful people!
