what is a place that shaped you, and how does it give you purpose?

Cradled between Pakistan and India is the land of the five rivers, Panjab, which I call home. Its history is violent yet hopeful; awe-inspiring yet heartbreaking. Its land has birthed many known and unknown revolutionaries who made incredible sacrifices in the face of tyranny and oppression. The legacy of that land and its people is a constant reminder that a life of principle is a noble life.
