Let Us Not Forget


Today we’re saying TGIT with tomorrow’s public holiday, and after the completely manic week I have had at the office, I’m one of those who are incredibly excited for this additional day of grace!

For a while now I’ve been mulling over my actions and my treatment of others, and if you’ve been following me long enough you may have read the occasional rant or tantrum somewhere online. Ninety nine percent of the time it’s based on me being fired up over something being “unfair”. And while it’s mostly first world pains, unfairness is the easiest way to enrage and discourage a typical Libra like myself! That being said, the more I think about it, the more I feel rather petty. The holiday serves to remind us of those who fought and died unfairly for our rights (i.e.: “real” issues), with 21 March particularly paying homage to the sixty nine lives that were lost in Sharpeville Massacre in 1960.

For those who, like myself, occasionally “sweat the small stuff” based on what we deem “unfair”, let’s be grateful instead, and remember on this Human Rights day what our country never had twenty years ago. Let us remember the endless possibility this world now proposes, and the helpless pain others felt to give us a promising future. May we always aspire to make it worth their while.
