Death, an eye opener?
I sometimes think and wonder why we start talking about someone and praying for him after he dies; we start writing hundreds of articles and books and talking about the hero many hours and discuss on what a brave person that hero was.. Also 24 hours he is on media. huh!!
Alas... I wish we could encourage that bravery when he/she was not yet shot or killed.
A defender of children’s right becomes a hero after she gets a bullet. Yes, Malala that Pakistani hero - maybe half of those people who are now praying for her recovery and talking about her bravery after her injury even didn’t bother to know who she is before the attack.
There are many others who become hero and heroines exactly after their death; they actually take the desire to grave… the desire of being recognized as a hero among people whilst they are alive.
It always reminds me of the poor painter who couldn’t sell his paintings while he was in need of cash. The pictures and paintings were sold in a high price with a plan of the wise poor painter. His wife informed all that the he is no more alive…
This is what happens in the real world…
My mom says when she was in United States passing across a graveyard she stood and prayed for their souls to rest in peace, suddenly her friend grabbed her hand and says, oh dear, they are died and already blessed. Pray for those who are alive!
May God bless us.
