The definition given by Wikipedia for Sovereignty, quote ‘’..is the quality of having supreme, independent authority over a geographic area, such as a territory. It can be found in a power to rule and make law that rests on a political fact for which no purely legal explanation can be provided...’’,un-quote.
Sovereignty provides an avenue for its citizens to fully live their lives in freedom, but at the same time consumes a lot of combined efforts that are sometimes obvious and sometimes otherwise, in order for it to meaningly last from generation to generation. This is why a humble sense of respect must be attributed to those before and whom are still with us, that have dedicated their careers, to some extent their own lives and livelihood for the sake of preserving sovereignty. What brings some form of comfort feeling, is that most, if not all of their contributions are acknowledged publically by way of tradition, legacies, distinguished ceremonies, social status titles, medals and official ranks that require tactful merit to qualify oneself for them.
For the civic minded and for a civilized society, both are in need of a balanced co-existence between those who are by destiny entrusted to safeguard a country’s sovereignty, with the rest who have the duty to uphold it. It isn’t so difficult to picture a chaotic destruction of a conquered state that had been sophisticatedly weakened because of the absence of sovereignty.
