Celebrating Europe Day (9 May)

You may have come across a reference in a diary or elsewhere to the fact that 9 May is "Europe Day" and perhaps asked about its significance. Probably very few people in Europe know that on 9 May 1950 the first move was made towards the creation of what is now known as the European Union thanks to The Schuman Declaration of 9 May 1950.
I have a question for you all as a way to celebrate "Europe Day." WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU TO BE EUROPEAN? Please, feel free to participate leaving your messages!
Have a look at this video for inspiration!

Very interesting video. It helps people get to know that the EU is really in constant movement, trying to improve and to make people comfortable.

I have known that The Europe Day is at 9 May when I saw it in the forum. I feel more my country that my continent. I only have got that when I want to travel. It's more easy for me.
