Independence Day

Today is Finland's Independence Day. At six o'clock I lit two candles and placed them on a window sill. As we do every year on 6th of December. I watched the Independence Day concert from the television and shed a tear or two when a choir sang Finlandia Hymn. I thought of my grandparents who lost six year of their lives fighting for us in the war, and I also shed a tear or two for the great man of South Africa, who passed away on the eve of our Independence Day.

Rest in peace, all you heroes.
