The head of the government quoted one of the statements made by Zyta Gilowska that we should remember about the traditions and guard values in which we were brought up. As Zyta Gilowska said – Poland is worth having – Beata Szydło pointed out. Each of us writes the story of our life. We are responsible for all sentences which are included in that story. When we turn another page, we don’t know if we will be able to fill that page in – the prime minister added. 

Thank you Professor for your great, beautiful story – Beata Szydło said.
