God gives his hardest battles to his toughest soldiers. I personally have a lot of respect for the people in the defense, and also for their families. It’s not easy for any mother, wife or for that matter any family member to let your dear one go out into the war zone without knowing if they will ever return. The love for the nation they have is tremendous. They happily are ready to give up their life for the sake of the nation. And their family is proud of the sacrifice. “If death strikes before I prove my blood, I swear, I will kill death.” These were the last lines written on personal diary of solider for whom the country meant more than anything. Even his life. And the words of his mother, truly sums up the heroic life of the soldier: “more than us, he was the son of his motherland. He was born with a special purpose.” These quotes have explained the selfless behavior of the defense families perfect to the T. In this story too, a solider has given up his life for his country. This letter from the airline pilot who was on duty while the remains of the fallen soldier were being brought home will bring tears to your eyes, and the way his family is treated after his death is worth the read. Read the letter till the very end to get the essence of patriotism, unity and oneness.
Let’s not forget for every breath that we take, a soldier gets injured out there. Hundreds of soldiers die because of ambushes and we don’t even know about it. Sometimes we don’t even know the about such incidents. What do you think?
