I interviewed my grandmother, who is eighty-five years old. She explained everything that happened at the white cliffs, and she seems to have a good memory. She never wanted to recall the memories that she had gone through at the cliffs but really tried to tell me everything that went on.

It is was the first time that I visited the White cliffs, and I always wanted to see their beauty. This is because I had been told many stories about how the White Cliffs are wonderful, and it gives one-lifetime experience. When I reached there, I could not believe my eyes because what I saw really amazed my eyes.

“This is wonderful grandma; I could never think that I could ever visit a beautiful site like this. The White cliffs look like it is a good place for meditation.” I said, looking at the cliffs.

“This is true; there are many times when we were young, and we usually came at the cliffs for meditation and also praying. The cliffs looked like they had the healing power, and many people could visit here, and after that, they admitted that their lives were better.” Grandma explained to me, pointing at the specific place where people used to go for meditation.

“I can see this is a good place where people can meditate and get the healing power of the cliffs. I have also heard many stories that the cliffs are part of history, what role did they play because they are so famous?” I asked grandma eagerly.

“Well, if you can closely there are tunnels that lead all the way to Britain. The cliffs were used as hideouts during the war. There was a time when we came here at the cliffs to hide when war erupted on our land. Many people were killed, but we came here at the cliffs to rescue ourselves, and this truly saves our lives. I do not even want to remember those memories because of the pain we went through. We were nearly starving at this place.” Grandma said bitterly.
