"We are all born into this world to love and to be loved. When we think about love, “Romeo and Juliet” come to our minds yet again. Why? Why do we wish to see their love story over and over? The secret of “Romeo and Juliet” lies in its timeless story that touches our hearts. It is retold time and again, affecting new generations, carrying us away. There is something mystifying in it, which cannot be explained. Romeo and Juliet die tragically because hostility and hatred do not lead to any good. In fact, happiness, humanity and dignity, which are present in all of us, win in this story. Everybody has the right to love, to be an individual, to have feelings. Unfortunately, not everybody can, because the world is not as perfect as we would like. We must often stand up for our beliefs and the greatest blessing – love. Just like Romeo and Juliet did. Because when there is no love, where can one find strength…"
