200 years of independence

The cry is not yours. It is not you talking, but innumerable ancestors talking with your mouth.
It is not you who desire, but innumerable generations of descendants longing with your heart.
[…]
Enlighten the dark blood of your ancestors, shape their cries into speech, purify their will, widen their narrow, unmerciful brows. This is your second duty.
