Two text messages on my mobile phone, at 7.20PM yesterday and 3.52AM today took away my sleep.

The first was from Shila of Agendadaily about the demise of Kerdau State Assemblyman Datuk Zaharudin Abu Kassim. The other was from Sharul, Pol-Sec of Defense Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, that the minister's mother-in-law passed away at the Terendak Camp Hospital.

I dont know Zaharudin much but I am sure his family members and close friends felt the loss. However, I do know Hamidah Khamis' mother.

To both families, I would like to express my deepest condolences, 'semoga Allah mencucuri rahmat ke atas roh mereka'.

On the Internet, I just read how about 40 people were killed in a car-bomb blast in central Baghdad, miners died in a coalmine in China, a major bus accident in Bolivia, few Palestinians shot dead by the Israeli soldiers, and other news about 'DEATH'.

The only consolation news is from the United Nations - that there were more newborns than death last year. But still, as the world's population grows, there are people who kill each other for food and survival!

yang hidup akan mati, bang, tak kira tua atau muda. buah kelapa muda pun boleh jatuh, kereta baru pun boleh rosak.

sementara ada nyawa ni, jagalah elok2.

abang tu, bila nak stop smoking? not good la!

orang sayangkan dia...

my sister died in an accident last month but no condolences except from our family.

when a VIP dies, so many people express their sadness. they even bought ad space in newspapers.

when an ordinary citizen dies, our leaders dont care.

right, sir?

salam jai,

nampaknya ada bloger yang suka tiap kali ada kematian wakil rakyat. maklumlah, ada pilihanraya kecil.... masssyuuuukkk!!!!

aku harap kau bukan jenis diorang ni, menangguk di air keruh dan kaut untung daripada kesedihan orang lain
