But in truth, I am broken and scattered to see what my country has become. We are tired and it’s becoming one time too many, how is it wrong to demand for our right/ expectations and be killed at it. How?

 

We wont forget this day – 20.10.2020 in a long time. May the souls of th fallen heros Rest In Peace!
