"Every man dies, not every man really lives."
--William Wallace

Whenever thinking of Scotland, I am shocked by the braveness and justice of William Wallace, the Scottish man characterized as a hero who died for freedom of himself and the whole Scottish people in the movie "Brave Heart."

Wallace became an orphan when he was a child. Because of the brutality of Long Shank (Edward I), he lost his father and brother who had revolted against the cruel dictator.

Even growing up, Wallace was also persecuted by the ruthless rule of the lord, which finally made him insurrectional.

The most moving and impressive moment was when he screamed out 'FREEDOM,' which he had been pursuing since birth, rather than 'mercy,' which then represented liberation of himself.

As William Wallace once said 'Every man dies, not every man really lives', which is full of profound thinking and encouragement for me and inspires me to pursue real valuable things in life.
