They want to shoot me but they stood around me and protected me. One of the memorable moments I won’t forget. 

“I grew up saving my people. If we help each other, no matter what happens, we will never feel alone and the good things we have done will live even if we die.”The soil’s given to us but it’s not in our hands to ruin it. The Nature can live without a man but a man cannot leave without it.

We divide our land equally for people who needs it, leaving trees on the mountains as our protection and forests as our boutique. It’s where plant and take our food, clean water, and medicines.   

If they take these all away then they will take away our lives.
