Sometimes we take a few things for granted. Like for example, our freedom. Or the security of our neighbourhood. Without giving it much thought. Ask a freedom fighter what it was like to keep up the resistance that eventually made the foreign dominance yield to our demands, and you will start seeing the reel of events through his eyes. And salute the heroes that chanced their arms for the glory of the land. After all, who can value freedom more than those who have fought for it? And who can understand the value of peace better than those who have witnessed friends, colleagues and relatives bite the dust at the altar of war?
These fearsome and fearless leaders have braved all odds in their bid to take down the enemy, and have silently mourned the loss of human life to the lethal onslaught of the foe.
