About 330 students who attended the preparations got to understand about Rwandan heroes, the vice mayor asked students to have will and insight to differentiate between bad and good decisions.
“A hero is any person distinguished by exceptional courage, nobility and strength. A person who fights for a cause and plays a role and becomes exemplary” the vice mayor for social affairs explained.
For students to live up to standards of heroism they need to work hard and excel in their studies, they should be exemplary in their actions and support weak fellow students to in their studies. The theme for this year’s National Heroes day states; “Heroism is the Foundation of Dignity and Development.”
Students are supposed to dignify themselves at a very young age and to be courageous in whatever they do for their future to be in development, by dignifying themselves, they will dignify their Rwanda.
Students who attended this dialogue preparing the National Heroes day that will be celebrated Friday the 1st.Feb.2013 admit to having learnt a lot from the presentations they got and they are ready to live towards the standards of heroism.
