In the time of ancient gods, warlords, and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero.

He is Harry, a mighty prince, forged in the heat of battle.

The power, the passion, the danger.

His courage could change the world…

That was modified from Xena: Warrior Princess.

The person I’m talking about is Prince Harry. He is the first member of the British Royal Family in 25 years to serve on the front line after it was disclosed last thursday that he has been fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan.

It was a quiet thing. There was an agreement with the press not to disclose it. So Harry went in. The conditions over there can be said to be unfit for a prince. But Prince Harry did not mind. He endured it all, never complaining. In fact, he enjoyed it.

Then the story of his service broke out and he was pulled out. It is expected that he won’t be returned to service anytime soon.

I never admired Prince Harry. Before this there were so many negative reports on him. And when he was finally going in, news that he’ll be kidnapped or assasinated there made it impossible for him to go. So I was really surprised to find that he lived through it!

I think that it’s good that he’s finally shedding off his ‘bad boy’ tag and embracing life as a royal role model.

I wonder whether William will do the same.

Actually, I believe that Prince Harry has done a disservice for his country. He knew that his presence there would make his comrades a prime target for the Talibans, but he went anyway. He should be ashamed.

leafless: Hmm, we all have different views I guess. You do have a point here, but nobody knew he was there, right?
mayz: Enjoying?

Heyyy …
Yeah i agree that it was very brave of him but at the same time he is condoning war and in his position as a prince , i just don’t think that’s right . War is glorified and yes , just by being there , he made himself and his comrades a very valuable target la … Nice post though , i like how you thought things out !
