Ana Bedrina predlaže 12. svibnja za Dan hrvatskih iseljenika i zaštitnika sv. Leopolda

I pored svog raseljenog naroda po cijelome svijetu, Hrvatska do sada nije ustanovila Dan hrvatskih iseljenika. Kao katolička zemlja koja ima sv. Josipa za zaštitnika države, mi nemamo zaštitnika za brojno iseljeništvo. Iako bi ga mogli imati, jer imamo brojne uzorne ljude i svece, ali još nije postavljen.samo jedan od njih je u svojoj službi bio pravi iseljenik i s nostalgijom mislio na svoj povratak kući, među svoj narod, pa makar i poslije smrti (citat: "kad bi bar kosti moje mogle počivati na mojoj rodnoj grudi"€œ). I koji je pokazao svoje domoljublje i vjernost domovini kad je žrtvovao svoju slobodu, odbivši talijansko državljanstvo, jer se nije htio odreći svoga hrvatskog državljanstva rekavši da "krv nije voda".
