Yes,I go…..

To the ends of my imagination…

Beyond the valley and the moors…

Beyond isolation…

I do not lose hope.

I wait for you.

You keep shining.

Military force is synonymous with fear, brutality and suspicion. The main reason behind this contradictory public image is the “draconian” law, Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act.
