Heroes


The Garden of Remembrance, is an small memorial garden in Dublin. And among all other irish memorial places, it is just which brings me more emotional feelings.
It’s dedicated to the memory of all those who gave their lives in the cause of Irish Freedom, and it’s located in the northern fifth of the Rotunda Gardens, in Parnell Square. That’s a beautiful Georgian square at the northern end of O’Connell Street.
Living this days stuck between four walls, far from my beloved Ireland, with all this insane string of rules that we should to obey -supposedly for our good- and for respect for those who work night and day to solve this global health crisis; I can’t evoid to remember all unknowed heroes who over the times they helped to build a better world for the future generations.
And I’m not just talking about heroes who fought with weapons in ancient wars. Neither those who are fighting now in hospitals and whose work is so difficult and appreciated right now. I’m talking about people as you, or your neighbor.
Suddenly, we’ve seen our lives turned and altered. Our jobs, our regular schedules, and our simple daily lives.
Of course, if you’re reading this, we are so much lucky people in comparison with other ones living in countries with a lot of problems of health, fear and poverty. But I don’t refer this. That’s not the point.
I mean, all those people who fought in the past – in Ireland and other places- they fought to reach a future of freedom and a future where their descendents we could be able to live in the way we live.
Some weeks into our houses with a semi-liberty regime is not a terrible thing. All we’re making the most our possibilities and doing other things that we enjoy or we consider important for us.
Is all that is to coming after which makes me think about all that. It will be then when we’ll need our daily heroes. It will be then when we shall be brave and shall defend everything so that those who fought. It will be then when we shall to be heroes, surviving in a society that will have become a little bit more hostile.
But please, don’t allow it. May the spirit of solidarity of these days remain after the storm! As the resurrection symbol of this amazing sculpture in the Garden of the most beautiful land in the world.
Love
Ian
