From the time I started writing this journal on my history, I have realised this.
In the years from which i was birthed, the dual-empire world where you had to take a side watched one side crumble, and the ideology of the dominant spreading over it’s remains; a Pax Americana would rise.
The notion of a black an white world shattered and showed the reality of the different shades of colour, different shades of hate.
But a further analysis would show that earth-shattering events will always take place, shifting the tracks of which the global train runs on unceasingly. The past is always seemed better as the suffering of the present is always more vivid.

i begin again.
