Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison for standing up to the oppressive powers and believing in justice, Martin Luther King was assassinated for wanting to reverse centuries of racist thinking, Gandhi was assassinated for believing in peace. 50 Cent was shot 9 times. I was banned for trying to talk for the unvoiced voices of our nation.
Now I realize that being a hero means you have to face hardships and overcome them with faith that good will triumph evil someday. After having been unjustly banned for believing in what's right, I too join the ranks of my heroes. Even though these days have been spent contemplating the meaning of life and experiencing a great deal of pain, I am still happy that I now am in the same league as my heroes as I too have sacrificed my life for the comfort of others.
