Happy Breaks and A Vote From a Kid

I’ve mentioned it before in a few other posts that I rarely check facebook nowadays and if I do, it’s only for a few minutes. I did today and found some happy updates/posts. First is an engagement announcement by my cousin c/o his new fiancé. She tagged it as something beautiful in 2020. Indeed 😊. Another happy couple I know got married recently after being together for about 10 years. I guess the challenges this year have made minds clearer on important/urgent things in life or at least, some direction we want to take.

Another post I saw was from NZ’s PM Jacinda Ardern. She got a letter from a 6 year-old kid expressing how upset s/he was to learn that s/he can’t vote yet. The kid went ahead and created his/her own ballot paper. While I’d rather kids not grow up too fast and carry the world’s problems on their shoulders too soon, It is amazing to inspire them to be involved in society this early, to engage in matters than concern the larger community. That’s worthy of praise and quite an accomplishment, one that I imagine she (NZ’s beloved PM) didn’t plan to do but managed to accomplish anyway.

Here’s the link to the post. I hope it cheers you up as well.
