X-Ray of the Backbone of Sudan.. When Life Imitates Art
Tears of joy cascaded down his face while clutching an army officer who happened to be in his vicinity.
Pride was indelibly engraved on every single feature of her motherly entity and glowing face while kissing an army soldier on the head.
A child in full army attire was raising the Sudanese flag higher than any foreign plot, literally saying: '' The present has taught you –the enemies- an unforgettable lesson, but I –the child- am the future that promises even more deterrence, dignity, and honor.
Women, of all ages and from all walks of life, engulfed the scene, painting an unparalleled picture of support and unrivaled unity.
People swarmed into and around the general command of the army of the country in unequalled numbers and unmatched solidarity.
The army officers and soldiers were speechless, humble, and touched, yet strong, reliable, authoritative, and perpetually ready to do whatever it takes to defend their homeland.
The scene was by all means beyond words. One tattooed onto the calendar of national cohesion by a painter whose skill has before been, and still is, propping the national economy.
The country: Sudan.
The man, woman, and child: The Sudanese people.
The painting: Whole in one, and one in whole.
The army: Armed Forces of Sudan (the backbone of the republic).
Time: An everlasting moment in Sudanese history, every moment in Sudanese history.
The painter: Higleig.
Brief Background: Sudan, a country reaching so far back into civilization it's no longer possible to distinguish between the two, has volunteered yet another canvas painted with strokes of dignity.
The army is an institution so rooted in traditions of patriotic service that it's not just an institution anymore, but rather an icon. It has proven to be more effective and efficient than what its job description requires, its job is to defend the country, but its spirit –it turned out- is unifying the domestic front as well.
We hereby declare, and confirm an earlier, commitment to support the Sudanese Armed Forces, and maintain our allegiance to them. For the pride they bestow on us is overwhelming, and the mission they take on 24/7/365 is beyond honor.
The Sudanese People Date: Everyday.
