Today I would like to mention something that is never-ending haunting. Which is death.
The black parade.
A friend of mine just lost a father, Innalillah, al-fatihah. To imagine something happened so sudden. Last semester, a dear friend of mine also faced the same thing and a close friend of mine just lost her buddy. Loosing someone you hold dear, I wonder what it feels like. We can't escape death. And one day the day will come. What will you do when the day come? Will you just spend your days crying. The pain must be excruciating. It's like a torment to the mind and body.
I've met so many people with the same tragedies. Some have changed because of it, for better or for worst. Back at camp we always have this what we call an open discussion, or ''the talk''. Where whoever wanted to share something can share in front and we all listen to the tales. Off course there is always those tear shredding moments. These strong people have faced so much.
And some of them have taken the role of a mother, not committing adultery but taking place as the mother when the mother is no more. Can you imagine that? And we all even raise our tone of voice to our own parents.
Have you watched CJ7? Yes, the chinese comedy movie starring Stephen Chow. If you watched it you'll find tear jerker scenes in it. Like when the father died due to the accident and the boy cried. Here it is. and english dub here.
Look at the boy, he doesn't have a mother and just lost his only father at a very young age. This maybe fictional but there are someone facing it at the other side of the world we don't know right?
Say, how would you feel when you have to face these farewells? I even cry when my cat passed away. I can't imagine...
" We only got 86 400 seconds in day to
turn it all around or to throw it all away
We gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say
Gotta live like we're dying. "
