MY REVIVAL

We need to know the language of the enemy, to know his habits, mentality. Only then we can turn to any of its rebuff with his own language. Especially it is very necessary to the military.

There are moments in your life where you sense that there was a missed opportunity, that you should have made the extra effort and “been there”. You would never be able to recreate the experience ever again. It’s as if the Gods planned it, the power and the beauty of the forests unfolding its splendor and the wilderness dictating the law of the land…where in a moment of fierce battle and sniper shots you are moved with the tenderness by nothing more than animals crossing your path.
