How long will it take before we realize that it is us, the people, who are responsible for our actions and their consequences for our generations to come. Here is what I want for Pakistan, and hence, the subcontinent. First, security of life and liberty. In Pakistan at present, one is afraid to venture outside one's home during the day let alone at night. When I was growing up, I heard the stories from my history professors that during the time of Akbar the Great, an old woman could walk in town with a bag full of gold and no one would dare touch her. Can we say the same about Pakistan of today? I want to see the same security and liberty in this country that existed at that time. With security comes peace of mind for the individual with which one can be productive in one's daily affairs. At the state level, security and liberty create fairness and justice.-PRINCE RIZWAN AHMAD, September 8.
