I guess that no matter how you try to escape from thinking of death, it can just pops up suddenly and shock you of a very sad reality in life especially when it comes unexpectedly and take a young friend of yours.
We unconsciously anticipate the death of people around us when they grow older. Nature does prepare us and to face our old people death along with preparing them as well to face it. At some point our bodies became so worn out that it can’t handle to stay alive, but it comes in steps, in years of preparation where we learn to accept our destinies.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t go naturally everytime. Sometimes, a young person dies. Just like this, suddenly, and before any previous alarm. No preparation at all. No signs of weakness, no sickness, nothing. Just some hopes, and dreams for a better future. To live happily for a long time to come.
All has been stripped away off my friend Mishal Awwad. His family had to loose their son at a young age of 29 for a deadly stroke. Without any alarm. He is gone. Rest in peace somewhere away from the people who love him.
Eventhought I haven’t been so close to Mishal, maybe we can say I have been an acquintance of him more than a friend, but it shocked me. It is hard to believe that someone can just leave this life suddenly especially when you know the person. I am sure it is even harder to believe on his parents and siblings. May God help them in this crisis.
Btw, why the hell do we bury each other under the ground?!! It sounds like a reality check to me, that who died would never come back….
