  We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.
– Friedrich Nietzsche


With the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic as a silent but relentless adversary, our mantle, as front-liners, could not be tested more as we adapt to uncertainties on the ground and daily battles within ourselves to fulfil our duty to defend our nation whilst being fully aware of the possible dangers that we and, more importantly, our loved ones are exposed to. However, for every worthy foe, an even greater champion is forged. A seasoned warrior called Love strives at the battle front, quietly manifesting through kind actions, faithful resilience and dedicated work towards the protection of lives which we have the greatest love for.
