“War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”
―J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers
Every one of us wishes to live in peace. Every one of us wishes to live in freedom. Every one of us wishes to live in a free and peaceful world.
All of us want to live in a world free from fear and violence, where we can live our lives the way we want it, and be who we want to be. But then again, not all of us are brave enough to fight for freedom and peace. Only a few would dare to face the terror of war to achieve freedom and peace.
Our soldiers possess the courage of a warrior; a warrior who would dare face anything that’s in the way of his goals and dreams. He would destroy every enemy who would stop him from achieving his wishes. He would sacrifice even his very life to achieve freedom and peace.
We have witnessed the bravery of our soldiers during World War II. World War II was the most catastrophic war in human history. Our soldiers fought and endured endless battles to protect our freedom. Some soldiers were lucky to have lived to share their stories while some sacrificed their very lives.
One of the most unforgettable moments during World War II was when prisoners of war were freed. Thirteen thousand eighteen men endured being imprisoned for three long years, but only 295 survived. On May 1945, after six long years of endless fighting, Germany lost and the battle was won.
Let us honor our brave soldiers, alive or dead, who fought for all of us. Let’s watch this short film below which tells the story of our soldiers.
