Telovadba: Cleveland Style

A few years back, I took on the challenge of creating a video from old 8mm tape. It contained segments of Slovenian-Americans participating in gymnastics (in the Slovenian language, televadba). Many of the people in this video are leaders in my community that I look up to. Seeing them in these videos only solidifies my respect for them. The sport of gymnastics takes endurance, courage, strength, and dedication — all qualities I still see in them. Please take a moment to watch this video. Many of the people came from large families with very little extra income, yet they knew how to build dreamland to grow up safely in. I am proud to be a Slovenian in the Cleveland community!

(I believe my mom briefly shows up in this video at 6:03!)
