“A people’s relationship to their heritage is the same as the relationship of a child to its mother

Be the one who preserve them not the one who writes the name of the crushes or the one who rather sees  it as a place for hang out and party.

A nation’s culture resides in the Hearts and the soul of it’s people.”
