One must never forget about its own existence and always believe in oneself. An individual must never kneel down to violence, and injustice. Life has different shades and it needs courage to stand for truth. Life is beautiful and the best way to live it full is to seek happiness in all of its shades. She believes, we human often tend to make things difficult by changing it because of our dissatisfaction towards it. There are things that are simple and need not to be complicated and vice versa. Strength is a form which can bring a positive change in the society therefore we must always put an emphasis on strength. Society is a fabric and we all are thread. We must always strive forward keeping our eyes wide open and trying to understand, and differentiate between truth in fallacy, justice and injustice, freedom and oppression. Looking away from a problem is an easy way out. Rational people get on their knees, get all their strength together and fight for justice irrespective of the consequences. Leaders don’t show their back, they lead and never ever have an element of fear within them because life is a gift and its sole purpose is to influence life around. One must always remember what they have been through, what they have faced and struggle done, injustice faced, oppression witnessed and battle fought and lessons to be passed to the next generation so the world remembers there were people who stood against the army of fallacy, being fearless and won, and won it emphatically by just believing in their rights and standing by the side of truth.
