The truth I never knew

It's been quite awhile since I touched political issues in my blog. About three years had passed, I used to make commentaries in one online newspaper about politics especially in my own country. I just could not help but react about certain issues when I realized that they affected and aggravated the lives of the masses. I used to be a mass defender in secret. But then my boss opted to close the site after couple of years. Feeling tired somehow in dealing with governmental issues, I shifted my writing into the lighter side of life. I was not really very good in my Political Science or History class when I was a student. The subject got me bored. Though there were interesting stories about some of our heroes in the past or of political terms, I still got to yawn with the way my college professor dealt the subject for us to have better understanding about their importance. However, I never thought that when I finished college, the subject would be one my interests. I realized that there is more to the thing of the past that we ought to know and should not forget. Things that may have gone but continue to depict our lives at present.

There is no endpoint to learning. Having said that, reading becomes my very good refuge. I am not a "know-it-all" individual even when I continue to learn and discover things. As a matter of fact, I still get to feel amaze to have known past or present issues even outside my very own country. Just an hour ago, I read this one article online that talks about the truth and facts about holodomor . Now you may ask me what that word is. Well, even to me, it never sounds familiar. I suggest that you read the passage from holodomor-truth.org and learn about the peasants of that time in the past who suffered much due to ineffective economic policy of the Republics of the Soviet Union's Communists government.

When I read the article, I am somehow afraid that it could happen in this present global financial crisis that we're facing. We may not realize that in some part of the world, there are also existing communists government who may likely attempt to neglect the need of the poor and continue with their personal aims and selfish desire. I honestly fear for my own country. I couldn't think for more when I read that site's article but the status of my very own native land. However, I pray that God forbid, that incident will never happen again.

selfishness has led to the many war and battles. it's sad that it's still there.

Thanks for sharing this, Nyl, and already I'm looking this event up on the internet. It's a horrible, sad truth. There are so many things we can learn from the past and things like these have led us to better human rights laws and more equality, I suppose.

learning is fun and funny because the more you learn the more you realize how dumber you are....
