My sister once told me a story of her classmate in elementary. A boy. It was their graduating year. He was pulled out from class one day. The teacher said there was a phone call from him. He left, perfectly fine.
Then he came back, with tears in his eyes.
He had received the news that his father had been killed in battle. The next day, he wore his fathers army jacket. To honor him.
I don't know where he is now. It was not based on his story that this one has been written, but in a way, his inspired this one.
Also, I give this as a tribute to soldiers around the world, dying to defend the country even when sometimes, the reason for war can never be understood.
