Is anger enough reason to take the life of someone? Could the continuity of your own life be more important than that of the other?
In just a short span of time, a few people have lost their lives. A food delivery personnel. A lad who just wanted to help. A pregnant woman and her stillborn baby boy. They didn't lose their lives because of COVID-19, but because of human's uncontrollable tendencies. Again, could it be enough reason?
I brave myself to go through the videos about them, trending online. All of them brought me to tears. I just couldn't bear watching or even finishing them. The third case brought me to so much anguish and heartbreak. Yes, I may not know the complete details of them all, but does it really need to go that far? If it is painful to me, how much more to the immediate family? It brought me a memory. That one that I thought would not hurt me anymore upon remembering it. I know I let everything to God. However, my human heart just can't conceal it. I know in the deepest of my heart, a part of me wants justice to be served. Yet, instantly, I would be reminded that justice belongs to God alone.
