Kosovos future is uncertain and gloomy. Ancient enmity between Serbs and ethnic Albanians in Kosovo precipitated the crisis of 1998-1999. Peace remains fragile, and the restoration of this region is a distant hope. Pray that communal hatreds might be resolved and lasting peace, not dependent on foreign military forces, be established; the process surrounding independence is a highly charged issue.
