Shocking news like this allows us to think twice about life. Is the way we leave matters? and if it does, is it’s worth making plans for tomorrow when it’s not even promised? Such untimely death has made us realise how, waking up every day, going out and coming back safely in an underrated blessing.
This news has also taught us that ‘life’ no matter who you are, where you leave and what you do, death is inevitable. Tomorrow is not promised to us and whatever we do today, we should make sure we leave our best life as much as we can.
We all have only one life and no matter what country, race or state we find ourselves, happiness is one thing we should pursue always and love of one another of course.
