“Sadly enough, the most painful goodbyes are the ones that are left unsaid and never explained.”
Dying is not like you see on TV or in the movies. It is not peaceful or prepared. . . . It’s too real.
Losing a child is the loneliest, most desolate journey a person can take and the only people who can come close to appreciating it are those who share the experience. An out-of-order death such as child loss breaks a person (especially a parent) in a way that is not fixable or solvable — ever! 😦
Kids are not supposed to die. It is against all the rules of nature. It isn’t fair. It should not happen. Unfortunately, it does happen and when it does, it can be scary.
After a peer dies, teens are confronted with the realities of death, the possibilities of their own mortality, and feelings of being abandoned by close friends. Young people often think that they are immune to death. They think that death only happens to old people. When a friend dies, their entire world and beliefs are shaken to the core. That’s what happened on DECEMBER 16, 2014 in Peshawar! Although it’s been almost a year since the little angels left us but their memories and the scary images of that day are still vivid. 😥
BLACK DAY: #PESHAWAR ATTACK:
The hideous massacre at APS claimed the lives of killing 141 people, 132 of them children.
The attack began at around 10:30 A.M on December 16th, 2014 when seven gunmen, disguised in uniforms of the Pakistani paramilitary force, the Frontier Corps, entered the school from the back through a cemetery adjacent to the school after having scaled the walls. Via Wikipedia
As bullets flew in the Army Public school in Peshawar, a grade eight student sat with a bullet in his chest and consoled his mother on the phone that he was all right, and unhurt.
We live in a world where animals are better than humans. The abhorrence you hold for these barbarians should not go down at any point. Their defeat lies in the fact that the school they painted in blood one month ago echoes with chants of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ today. The children they came to scare are still there with determination even higher than before.
Don’t for a moment think that only Peshawar bled that day, because on that atrocious day, Pakistan bled. On that day, humanity bled.
PESHAWAR IN MOURNING
PAKISTAN IN MOURNING:
A day after the attack, Peshawar appeared subdued and many were still in shock, recalling the gruesome events. People around the country lit candles and staged overnight vigils as parents prepared to bury their children during mass funerals in and around Peshawar — a big, volatile city on the edge of Pakistan’s lawless tribal belt.
Twitter was flooded with tweets related to Peshawar Attack.
These assassins will have to pay for every drop of innocent blood that covered the classrooms of APS Peshawar on 16th December. For every tear drop that followed the attack.
The wounds will never heal and will continue to bleed. Little ones, your sacrifices won’t be forgotten EVER! ♥ My heart goes out to the families of those children who got killed by the terrorists in Peshawar.
We do not have control over many things in life and death but we do have control over the meaning we give it. However, grief changes us and we are never the same. We can never go back to being our “old selves”.
BUT it was once said by Rumi.
“Do not grieve. Everything you lose comes around in another form”
