Europa, you were once so strong, you were once admired by many. You were an unmatched empress, you set an example for others: you were a beacon of freedom, a safe haven for suppressed minorities. You were enlightened, shined your light on others and hence saved them from darkness. You were the personification of Liberty, Democracy, Enlightenment, Justice, Fraternity, Freedom of Speech, Human Rights and so much more.

With pain in my heart I have to admit that they defeated you, you fought a great fight but they were too strong and with too many. The bull took you away from us. What once was unthinkable became reality. What we once took for granted is no more. You will go down in history as the beauty that once was. Europa you are no more. Europa rest in peace; you will be missed.
