  Our world is not always as free and wonderful place as we wish. Some extraordinary people however, use all their imagination, power and life to make it a better place. Call them rebels, geniuses or crazy, these people have a special place in the heart and soul of Love Warriors. For the LW icon candleholders we have chosen three true warriors whose lives, struggles and legacies lighten up and make the world a better place. These three are Malala Yousafzai, Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi.
