Macedonia in mourning

Today is an official day of mourning in Macedonia: their great singer Toše Proeski was killed in a car accident in Croatia yesterday. I saw him perform at a Macedonian cultural/diplomatic event in 2005, an event I described here; he was very good, and everyone I talked to from Macedonia has taken his death very hard. He was only 26.

A very tragic death.

I don't know much about modern Macedonia as political entity (although your link has proven iluminating) but I think that it can only be healthy that a country recognises and celebrates cultural heroes. I wonder, in the future, how much the life/mythology will be intertwined with the early years of the nation as a whole?
