It sucks you know?
I'm at a war with my head. Every day sucks. So does every night. Crying in the washroom, and wiping the tears away when someone calls me. Cutting when my family sleeps. Not able to sleep because of my thoughts. People say they care, but it doesn't feel like it. It feels like everyone is slowly drifting away from me. Life sucks, and death is creepy. I'm stuck. I'm tired. I'm just done. #depressed#anxiety#insomnia#life#death
On this day in 1941, the Axis Powers commenced the invasion of the Soviet Union known as Operation Barbarossa. The initial attack consisted of the bombing of major cities in Soviet-occupied Poland. Additionally, an artillery barrage on Red Army defences commenced on the entire front. The destruction caused by this attack reached as far as Kronstadt near Leningrad, Ismail in Bessarabia, and Sevastopol in the Crimea. Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov told the Soviet people upon receiving news of the invasion: "... Without a declaration of war, German forces fell on our country, attacked our frontiers in many places... The Red Army and the whole nation will wage a victorious Patriotic War for our beloved country, for honour, for liberty ... Our cause is just. The enemy will be beaten. Victory will be ours!" This invasion would result in roughly 6,000,000 casualties in total.
