Is There Anyone Who Cares?

I held an especially moving interview with a gentleman form the Transylvania Saxons.

I try to quote his words as best I can

"We survived for almost 800 years in tiny communities and adapted. We kept our culture our language and our religion, and yet, now, I wonder does anyone really care if we survived at all? I do not have that answer as I now identify myself as a Canadian-- this being the same with many people, from Transylvania. Yet at heart i am still a Siebenburger Saxon. Does anybody care? I do not know"

It is harder to talk to people who lost so much to tell me about their lives, and often I wonder if what I am writing will make a difference, but I am sure that yes, people do care. People will care.
