As I set foot on the hospital yesterday morning and greeted the staff nurses, a loud sound from outside jolted all of us. We all rushed outside and obviously, it was an emergency case, a boy, a toddler, has drowned, and was dead on arrival.
I was not sure of the efficiency the health care team was able deliver the news to the family of the boy. Maybe, no matter how many years of practice and experience you have with this kind of thing, it is never easy.
It made me realize how simple life really is – there is an end, and it can happen any time, all of a sudden, and that’s it. Like my prepaid load expires just when I need it most, life and death can be a check that bounces off the bank and you are suddenly sank.
But you know what? I think the saddest thing in life is to die… while you live.
oo nga naman.
andyan ka sa sulok at inaaksaya ang oras mo.. pero nililibing ka na ng panahon.
poetic much? LOL i like how you said it though.
A child’s death is one that pains me the most. People are not supposed to die way ahead of their time. 😦
Anyway, I am glad to know that you’re well. I apologize for my rather long absence from these pages. Take care of yourself always, my friend.
but who knows when is their time right? i’m also swamped in work. ugh. you take care also bakerman!
there is no pain worse than losing a child.
death is hardest on the living.
i guess so. they are so innocent!
you have to make sulit life while it is still there…
wow ‘make sulit’ i like that.
No one is immune to death but what’s life without death?
This topic came up while I was talking to one of my friend.
If you can’t die, or in other words you’re immortal, are you even alive?
There’s a need to have this duality otherwise one will loose it’s sense.
It’s like wanting to have light without shadows. Heat without cold. It’s probably impossible. If it’s possible to have one without the other, will one still be itself?
I hardly believe so because the duality gives it’s characteristics.
Death is surely something sad, sometimes tragic but it’s necessary.
oh wow this is a very good comment, like a mini post. very strong points.
That is so sad. Death is inevitable, we can never really tell. It scares me how am I gonna die, I hope not in the sea where the sharks are going to feast on my decaying body, haha!
Well, let’s just say, kailangan may sign-up na sa memorial plan, sooner or later, dun rin naman tayo papunta. And I will leave a note to my lovedones with my url, para they can read it when I’m gone. For now, enjoy life! Let’s go shopping already!
ayoko din mamatay sa dagat. plane siguro plane okay pa. LOL
kaya dapat live life to the fullest kasi di natin alam kung hanggang kelan tyo dito sa earth.
btw mishu pm! 🙂
uu nga eh may expiration talaga. hindi ako makapagcomment sayo eh google lang yung pwede?
ganyan din ang nasa isip ko kapag may namamatay na malapit sa akin. kay rupok.
hay… i think i know what you mean.
but in real life it’s better to die than living 100x worst…>>>para lang to sa mga pessimist na katulad ko 😀
^^ dapat tayong maging masaya para sa kanya… hiiigh…
emo? LOL of course, dapat laging smile!
live life to the fullest.
as they say.
“To die while you live” – ahh, that’s so awakening. Carpe diem talaga dapat.
sometimes no matter how many times we hear it, it doesn’t make sense until we experience it.
grabe! sad nga! just goes to show that no one is immune from death. and you’ll never know when you’ll be leaving! haaay..sad naman ako for the family of the little boy. 😦
more than sadness i was so consumed in observing grief in front of me.
tama ka dyan
yun tipong dead in the inside
yun tipong gigising lang sa umaga at parang zombie gumagala sa kalye at walang pinatutunguhan
teka, may pasok ba?
may bagyo, ah
ayoko maging zombie, panget ang itsura. meron signal no. 3 pa kami mawawalan ng pasok eh hay… LOL
