Hari hitam dan putih untuk Malaysia. Even yahoo.my pun in black and white.
A very sad day.
Hope the family, friends and all the people that are affected can accept this.....
Well, I really have no other words that can describe this event, except as a calamity. Personal calamity for the family members.
"Be strong, be strong"...that is all we can say to them.
However, if the same thing happen to us, can we be strong too? Or collapse?
What I learn from this sad event :
1) Love and cherish people around you. Nothing in the world is bigger than the love you feel for them and they feel for you (except for the love of Allah and RasulNya).
2) Whatever happened is Allah's fate. You can cry tears of blood, but it will not change a thing. So, acceptance is the only thing for us to do.
3) Life needs to go on for the ones that are still living. Maybe at first for the sake of the unborn child, the little baby, the small toodlers, etc. But the ones left behind need to pick up the pieces and start living instead of wallowing in grief forever. After all, Time heals all wounds.
4) "Be brave" or "Be strong" are just 2 words that are easily spoken but are very hard to do. So say it with compassion and heartfelt.
Well, others may derive other lessons from this grave event, but for me those 4 are enough.
So, pray for the departed souls. May they be granted Jannah.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
