When we commemorate the victory over terrorism and separatism achieved in the fight to preserve unitary Sri Lanka, it is necessary to remember with gratitude the sacrifices made by our war heroes. Thousands of members of the armed forces were killed and thousands sill live in their homes or at special caring units with injuries sustained and many without a limb or some who have lost both.

To remember their priceless determination to protect the Motherland, let us in these difficult times of COVID 19.  hoist the national flag and say a silent prayer thanking the men of the armed forces.

We should also resolve ourselves never to give in to terrorism or separatism which if not nipped in the bud will result in another bold bath. We nearly were there, when the Easter carnage took place the nation by surprise and many hundreds of innocent civilians were massacred.

This nation is strong enough to withstand any illegitimate means of securing power with the use of armed violence as proved in the ancient as well as the modern history of the Island. Let us also dedicate ourselves to help the disabled members of the armed forces for their physical as well as mental rehabilitation and also to assist in any way possible to educate their children while we express our gratitude,
