I remember my elementary and high school history subjects teaching about the famous lines “I shall return” that was said by General Douglas Macarthur. Frankly, during those days I never gave much attention to the subject. Only memorizing the dates and names only to pass exams and avoid embarassment if I fail to answer the question by the teacher then I quickly forget and go on my life.
By chance, I remembered those two things, the words “I shall return” and the name General Douglas Macarthur. It was enough to make me excited when I heard that my relatives were going to take me to the statues that I only saw in pictures.
Up until I saw the statues in person, I thought that they were life-sized and was surprised that they were not.
