DEATH

Death, life, just what is it?
I came across a newspaper article today about a girl who was murdered by her boyfriend today and it was big news around my neighborhood as it took place (where else?) at my neighborhood.

I was troubled, troubled as death has never strike so near before. The girl seem so young, so full of promises but life as it seems, is never fair. Everywhere i turn to look, death seems to be everywhere and I so used to it until death just seems to be like numbers on a statistics paper.
But time after the time i do not realize that it is people's loved ones dying out there, normal humans just like me, husband, wife , father, daughter, brother, friends.

It just make me wonder just what life is.
Have you ever thought about life before and also death? What if you never wake up to see tomorrow's sunlight?


To be honest, I'm just confused of the state of our lives today. It seems that we do not treat death lightly anymore until it comes knocking at our door.

And it just makes me think more deeply about life. I often take life lightly, missing every God's blessing in it. Our wonderful blue skies with it's clouds, the chirping of the bird that always annoys me when i sleep, my friend's funny but charming laughs and the jokes that tease me but which i secretly like because it proves that my friends still care.










One more important thing would be our impending death.
"Choi!", you might say. Why want to be so pessimistic? But living in our world today, you'll never know when your time will arrive, because death seems so easy today. A lunatic could just walk in your school and go amok and there's a possibility you'll made headlines tomorrow. Really, you wouldn't know when the guy in the hood carrying a sickle would come looking for you.

But if the guy in the hood comes looking for me tomorrow, i know i have nothing to fear as i know i have live to the fullest in my life and by that i do not mean trying out the latest drugs or having the best sex ever or being the most popular or the most handsome (which i already am) guy ever but by saying that i mean that i have done nothing that i would regret and have i have fully lived to my conscience and to God.

I would have also no fear of where am i going next, no not the coffin but the journey after the coffin. Have you ever thought about it? About where death would lead.

To tell you the truth, i'm a guy who cares much about life after death. Because life after death seems so long compared to the time we have on earth and seriously, i think no one likes to be naked and be burned always in hell and neither do i. Playing harps on the cloud seems to be a much better idea for me and that is why under my religion, i would be proud to write CHRISTIAN boldly.

I know that after i die, i would be returning to home, how many religion says that by the way, and i would be enjoying a pretty darn good time with Jesus, enjoying every moment with Him. And i know there would be no tears anymore up there and playing harps would be a great idea too. I also know that i do not have to donate all of my money to charity organisations or to be a monk or to bomb myself up just to receive salvation. All i have to do is to just believe.


However, i know that my job here on earth here is not that easy and honestly, i would also want to see my friends playing harps with me too. The case of the girl being murdered has troubled me because one of the reasons is that she was at my church before but being as highly as we think we are, we did not pay much attention to her because we think we are that holy and look down on people like her.

Brothers and sisters in Christ, do not be like me. We are all the same, nobody is above another, only God is and never hesitate to spread the love around.

And for my other friends, have you thought about the purpose of life? Why are you sitting on that chair reading my blog post? Think about it kay?

Because we will never know when is our last day on Earth.
