“Never be too quick to judge another person’s situation and never say ‘That could never happen to me.’ The road of life has many twists and turns and sometimes the most unexpected things happen. No one is immune to life’s problems so show empathy for others because you just never know when you might need theirs.”
One of latest gruesome story coming out of India is that of a twelve year old girl who was gang raped by an uncle and two of her brothers. According to reports she was taken to her uncle’s house where the rape occured. When she threatened to go to the police, she was reportedly strangled. She was then beheaded and her body was dumped in bushes. The uncle and one of her brothers have since been arrested.
The fact that a child was treated in this manner is mind boggling. To know that the people who perpetrated the act is her own family makes it even more despicable. When, if ever, will the abuse of women and the culture of rape in India stop. One has to wonder if the government is doing enough to protect women and girls. India has a terrible record of sex abuse against minors with over 36, 000 cases reported in 2016.
Last Sunday an Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed near Addis Ababa killing all of the 157 people on board. They were only six minutes into the flight when the pilot reported problem with the plane and requested to return to the airport. Unfortunately they never made it back.
Since the accident some countries have joined a ban of the Boeing Max 8, among them Britain and Australia. My prayers go out to the families of the victims. May their souls Rest In Peace.
“Start each day on a positive note and try to remain motivated in-spite of all the negative things that may be happening around you. Remember that not everyone you encounter is going to leave you with a pleasant experience. Remain focused on what it is that you seek to achieve and do not allow yourself to be distracted.”
Stay positive and things will fall into place!
“Be careful who you ask for advice, because a person with no vision of their own will be quick to laugh at yours.”
It is wise to surround yourself with positive people!
I am now on to my third book as apart of my reading goals for this year. I am happy to say that I am on track despite having a busy schedule. The book I am currently reading is ‘THE BROKEN CIRCLE’ by Enjeela Ahmadi-Miller. I will write a review when I complete it.
“Find time each day to have a special moment to yourself. Enjoy the beauty of nature. Smile and be happy for life is short and you have to make the most of it.”
You have to pamper yourself sometime. Know that you are special!
“Don’t dwell on the past, it is behind you. Don’t stay stuck focusing on the mistakes you have made. We have all made mistakes. Use them as stepping stones to learn and grow. Today is an opportunity for a fresh start and another chance to get it right.”
Let go of yesterday. Tomorrow will be better!
I have finished reading ‘BLOOD AND JUSTICE’ by Rayven T. Hill which is my second book as a part of my reading challenge for this year. As promised you can read the review below.
Blood and Justice is quite interesting. It is slow paced but nevertheless intriguing. The story is about a teenage girl, Amelia James, who is kidnapped by Jeremy Spencer who has a vendetta against anyone he considered a thief. He murdered Amelia’s companion who had shoplifted while in high school but because she was innocent he held her hostage instead of killing her. Her mom hires two private investigators to find her and it takes them a while to figure out that the seemingly harmless Jeremy was the kidnapper. By the time they did Jeremy had killed two more people. Both had stolen something. It was suspenseful, wondering if he would kill Amelia or set her free.
“You must have a dream or a vision. Otherwise life is almost meaningless. Have a plan for your life and work towards it. Set goals and try to accomplish them.”
Don’t be afraid to dream big!
