"In the face of danger, we become dependent on each other, and our own safety depends on the safety of others," President Janos Ader said in a speech marking Hungary's March 15 national holiday in front of Parliament on Monday. "Are we capable of coming together even stronger than before against a force that threatens our lives and freedom and brings pain and death into our community?" the president said. "Will we put out the fire of the pandemic with the simple decision to get ourselves inoculated, or will we remain victims, waiting helplessly for a miracle?" "The struggle becomes personal when trouble is knocking on our own door," he said. "We cannot face emergencies alone," Ader said. "But revolutions and wars of independence may not be enough on their own for us to recognise this."
