The development and a prosperity of a country depend on the percentage of countrymen who live by the greatest motto of " Country before Self". It is the mindset difference of people between the developed countries and under developed countries. When people selflessly put aside their personal gains, individual gains and work towards the betterment of the country, the country will prosper and no other power will be able to hinder the development of such country.
What Sri Lanka needs today, is that more and more people adhere this great motto, starting from politicians from all parties, media and general public to embrace this grate motto.
Sri Lanka had many people who put country before self, the history sells us about many people, in the recent past many people put "country before self", some even sacrificed their lives, fighting terrorism. The country and countryman owes to the people who fought the war and who gave the political leadership to win the ruthless terrorism. We need to protect them from every external element who works for their own agenda or under influence of terrorist who still trying to bring down the country. We need to take action to protect the country, no matter how big or small the action is.
