the kingdom of heaven.

I woke up in a good mood today. never expected to hear all the sad news i heard.
my friend came over only to start crying telling me she just lost one of their close childhood friends to complications during childbirth.
I was trying to console her only for another to come in and tell me another guy just died in a car accident on holiday in nigeria.

I am quite flabbergasted at this point. what is happening? what are the young doing dying? am not insinuating anything but i thot the natural order of things was that the old died and the young was there to bury them and not the other way around.
am so sad right now, i dont know bothe people involved very well but the fact that they are humans and my age group makes me mourn their deaths because it could happen to anyone.

this has made me so vulnerable, because i begin to think, what makes me so different, why wouldnt the same thing happen to me if it is going to, they didnt do anything so wrong, death just happened on them.

this has been my reality check for the day and i think it is enough for a month. i have had ijoba orun on repeat eversince trying to get closer to God and repent of my sins(whichever it is i have committed;)) and hope that when it comes, we shall be prepared(even though no one realli ever is).

may the souls of all those whom we have lost rest in peace.
amin.
r.i.p bernie mac, never knew u would leave this world so soon and so young.

Glad you blogged about young people dying. Had a similar discussion with some friends a few days back. A young man had died in an accident. very sad as well.

Bernie mac's death so stunned me. He was one of the funniest Tv comedians and he did so effortlessly which was what I loved most about him.

May the souls of your friend and Bernie mac rest in peace. Amen

"...this has made me so vulnerable, because i begin to think, what makes me so different, why wouldnt the same thing happen to me if it is going to, they didnt do anything so wrong, death just happened on them."

You expressed what I've been thinking for the past two months now, Zara. Young, useful, good people die and it just makes me so sad, but God... He knows why.
