Before I came and joined in our recollection, I was so set in not joining because I didn't feel like it. Everyone thought that it was my parents' decision for me not to take part in this one in a lifetime event. In truth, it was all me who said that. When my parents found out that it was on the 8th of March, the day of the said event, they scolded me and asked me why I didn't want to join. For that I am thankful to God that my parents did that (even though I cried a lot) because I wouldn't be here today to share with you my experiences.
I had a lot of memorable parts in this recollection but the part that struck me most was when we held our bonfire, burned the sins that I had written on paper and the chain that enslaved all of us. It felt so releasing, like a big weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
I have learned a lot of things from this experience and gained a lot also. I gained the power of knowledge that life is the greatest treasure of all and must be protected, nurtured and shared wisely. I give to you this letter for me to tell my experiences to you.
