Bill Gates is investing 27 million dollars in Romanian public libraries. This initiative is going to provide 235 libraries with computers with free access to the internet and Microsoft applications. Librarians will benefit from free training in matters of computer use and they will advocate for the importance of free access to information for the development of the community.
Why am I using the word invest instead of donate? Because there are over 300 Romanians who work for Microsoft in various positions from programmers to group program manager, and Bill Gates probably felt the need to give something back to a community that gave him so much. And also, he’s investing in the potential of this community to give him valuable human assets in the future.
I’m not denying the greater good behind his investment. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation does a great deal of philantropic work all over the world, which is to be admired and respected.
I wonder how many of these Romanians who work in the USA for one of the best employers are ashamed to say they are Romanians..
I’d like to start with thanking all the narrow people I’ve met in Western Europe. You’ve got me so angry, that now I must do something!
Romanians are very often called gypsies, communists, paupers, vampires, savages, and God knows what other words these people have in their limited vocabulary. But how can you, stupid, narrow-minded, ignorant, and illiterate people, talk about a country you don’t know??
Your ignorance itself doesn’t bother me. I wish you a long ignorant life, if that’s what makes you happy. But don’t display it, don’t brag about it and don’t insist on it!! How can you say Romania is a communist country when you don’t even know where Romania is located on the map? How can you say we are backward when you have no idea about our inventors and our geniuses? Do you even know that it’s not your money that takes you to expensive holidays, but the invention of a great Romanian called Henri Coanda? And also did you know that it was a Romanian called Ioan Cantacuzino who created the anti-cholera vaccine, not long after hundreds of thousand of people died because of this in Great Britain? Did you know that it was a Romanian who discovered the insulin and created the insulin injection?
And these are only a few examples that prove that the Romanian people are special and have always played an important role in the development of the world.
But because you are so narrow minded I don’t expect you to understand the importance of these people.
I’m not writing this blog for you, but for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.
