Suomi Finland (by MsMoney). This is my country. I´ve been to most of the places mentioned here. On this map you can see where our capital Helsinki is situated.

"Sisu is a Finnish term loosely translated into English as strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. However, the word is widely considered to lack a proper translation into any language. Sisu is defined by a long-term element in it; it is not momentary courage, but the ability to sustain an action against the odds. Deciding on a course of action and then sticking to that decision against repeated failures is sisu"

Yes, "sisu" is a Finnish word and something very Finnish indeed. It has helped our nation during difficult times and it helps every Finn.

The mate monument in Bryant Park, Lake Worth, FL to the one in Finland. 3 Geese left the homeland, 2 arrived on the distant shore. Makes me want to cry.
