Bangrachan villagers didn’t fight for their city or their lives, but they fought for the dignity of Thailand. They could flee from their village and saved their lives by hiding in the deep jungle, but they didn’t. They set their camp to challenge the Burmese army. The eleven warriors lost their lives in the battle. Mr. Thongmen was bold enough to declare war with the Burmese and was the first one to die. When the Burmese army changed its strategy, the villagers failed to repel and got killed by the cannon. This resulted in a massacre causing Mr. Thongmen and his friend’s infuriation.
After gulping spirits, they rode on buffaloes bravely to attack the Burmese who were ready to engulf and kill those Bangrachan villagers. Subsequently, they died fearlessly in the battle. Their courage, unity, loyalty have been the role model for the Thai people.
Mr. Thongmen and his villager friends were just ordinary people who stayed loyal to the country. This impressed me and made me feel faithful to a country like them. Personally, the next generation should possess national fidelity and do good for our country.
