History of Supreme Sacrifice Day
Supreme Sacrifice Day is time to pay homage to people who have made the great sacrifice for us. Today we remember, reflect and pay tribute to these heroes. Soldiers who died on the battlefield and police officers and firefighters who died protecting or saving others are just a few examples of those who have made noble sacrifices. Those who drowned while trying to save others underwater or those who used their bodies to shield others in a shooting also made noble sacrifices, sacrificing their lives so that others could live. Supreme Sacrifice Day sometimes has a religious connotation, as Christians believe that Jesus made the supreme sacrifice by dying on the cross to atone for the world's sins. Nowadays, we still show our honor to all people who have made great sacrifices.
Why Supreme Sacrifice Day?
In the past, there were a lot of stories about sacrifice and courage which have inspired and motivated us to do great deeds. We were taught stories of people who lost their lives in school, so we developed the same traits and continued the good work. Not only at school, even at home, our parents and grandparents tell brave stories of wise souls who gave their lives to protect others.
The most obvious sacrifice involves death is the way we face. It is a chance for everyone to give thanks and gratitude to all those who have made sacrifices for us. All motivators and the later generation is so empathy, courage and willingness that they can give up their lives for an ideal cause, from saving thousands to even one soul, no matter human or animal, every sacrifice is considered as a great one.
We need to remember the great heroes who gave their lives defending our country and its borders, the army, the firefighters, the police, the air force, the navy and everyone in uniform. On Supreme Sacrifice Day, we pay our respects to great souls.
This day isn't just about heroes in uniform. We also remember our loved ones, be it our parents, siblings, friends, neighbors, or even a stranger who gave up his or her life for an act of bravery. There is no evidence to request using uniforms to perform great acts of bravery.
