June is about to end; I remember June has always been an epitome of new beginning, for the early 12 years we all as school-goers, were stepped into June with enthrallment. Just like that after all these years I felt this June has renewed me and gave me pen and confidence to voice out verbally. 2020 June and I, Let’s dive in.
Highs of June
As mentioned in one of the recent posts, I would say this writing challenge, religiously learning a new language, and also a positive turnaround in my career are the important breakthroughs of June.
Lows of June
I’ve been quite perplexed about the inhuman activities that just happened around the world. June was brutally slew us all and frozen our blood. Started off with George Floyd, followed by Elephant fed with explosives, brutal custodial murder, and a few days back girl was raped to death in Andhra. In all these incidents, devoid of humanity is the root cause. These barbaric acts have left permanent strain in our hearts and did shiver down the spine. It’s surprising to see voices all around and people are taking their stand to speak up on these issues. But are we humans are really concerned? Or just unlimited internet and the lockdown made us focus on these incidents? I hope people will stay on the ground until justice is served.
While you read this, take that pretty moment to thank god that the victim wasn’t you or your acquaintance. Now say, whatever you have gone through terribly this month, someone on the other end experienced much worse that you. Let’s face this uncertain life with a certain trait of kindness.
Let’s learn to cherish and live every moment; we never know what’s in the pocket of life. I’m utterly disturbed at this moment because my own uncle is reported COVID positive and the whole family went ground.
July, what you have bagged up for me? Have mercy on us, Please be kind and gentle 🙂
