Editor's Note: Amity Issue

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. It’s already July. Who would have thought that we have lived through half of the year; enjoying happy moments and braving tough times along the way. As we move forward with our lives, let us not forget to make amends with one another. We may think we have everything settled and ties fixed, but we may not realise the blunt comments that spill from our mouths could have hurt someone’s feeling. So swallow a little bit of pride and learn to apologise. The same way goes, stop feeling resentment over the past and embrace harmony. Love your friends.

 Eid is coming, so let this festive season be the time where we forge stronger bonds. Forgive and forget, and let go of grudges, - they are nothing but heavy weight you drag around. Nelson Mandela was a man who brought the world closer together. In the month of his birth, let this not be the only time we all stand together as one. The good relations shall remain. That is, ultimately, part of his vision for change. 

 Here at SPARKS, we have had a taste of both sweet and bitter medicine as a close-knit community. But so we learn. We learn that friendship plays a huge role beyond the four walls of the classroom. We learn that no matter what, your friends are truly your support system. They are the family you get the luxury of choosing. Things should always end on good terms, regardless of with whom it may be. So why not start now? Try to practice amicability with one another. You never know, the enemy you loathe today might be the one you will dedicate your appreciation post to on International Day of Friendship. One month could change anything.

“If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.”  - Nelson Mandela
