"Did you know that Finland is considered the country with the best press freedom in the world?" I asked my dad, who is a Finnish citizen, in spite of his almost 40 years living in Sweden. He did not quite believe me, so I took him to the Newseum.
He was happy to find out that I was right, and proudly took out his passport to show me – and the rest of the museum visitors – his true origins. Go Finland! We should all learn from you.
I just started thinking about this story, since May 3 is World Press Freedom day. Definitely a day worth celebrating.
