Sunday afternoon and I had just finished giving my wife lunch. I sat down to surf the NET. Richard Branson and the tragedy of the Virgin Galatic crashed that killed one of the pilots aboard have played on my mind since it happened. New South Wales are facing a massive storm clean-up after wild weather whipped through parts of the state. The storm claimed the life of a15-year old boy who was struck by lightning. Thank God only one!
Everything else was just a blur of information and data that did not leave any impression on me....until the article below in New Sunday Times.
I read it once, twice then three times. Three times to make me understand what Sharifah Asma'a had gone through, is now going through and will be going through in the days to come as she tries to go on living without her childhood friend from the age of 8 who was to became her husband and now one of those lost over the skies of Ukraine.
The tragedy of flight MH17 has taken her husband, Ahmad Hakimi Hanapi, 29, away from her and she is now left with her 1 year old son Abderrahman but her life will still have to go on....and she is now trying to do just that. Do not call her brave, do not admire her courage too much for she is doing what must be done - and like all of us that means to go on with life no matter what! What we must ask ourselves is what can we do to help her. Please read the article below and if, like me, you are left devastated at the tragedy that has befell her why not we try to do what we can to assist her.
Friends this is what I ask of you all......
Will anyone who stops to read what I write please send Sharifah Asma'a story to another person that they know with the request that they too must send the story on to another of their friend.... highlighting her business "Boost Juice store at D’Pulze, Cyberjaya"....and if there are a D'Pulze, Cyberjaya....please, please, please....visit her Juice Store and spend a few dollars to help her business.
For now this is all I can do....you can do more...share this story with the people you know. I am one, with you I am two....who else will join us to assist Sharifah and her 1 year old son with their life ? Surely we can do this!
