All We Are Saying, Is Give Peace A Chance

it's all we ever talk about for the past few days.. we hear it on the news everywhere.. it used to happen to other people, in other countries.. and never to us.. we used to say "i can't imagine what they are going through right now", but now some of us will actually know how it feels.. the pain, the suffering.. i'm super emotional with these kind of news.. i wept for the families who lost their loved ones.. i don't think i will ever be able to deal with it in a sane manner..

all of this only started to sink in when i found out that one of our best friend will be deployed there.. and then i started to think too much.. and then i started to get super sad.. which sucks because it's weird.. i wasn't sure whether to make a big deal out of it or not.. i didn't know to what extent was it all about.. i had mixed feelings.. and that was just my friend.. imagine what a wife or a mother or a daughter have to go through.. pictures were posted of troops hugging their families saying goodbye, welcoming their duty as they knew this is what they signed up for.. 

and a note my best friend made rang true.. after all, she should know.. we don't see the effort and sacrifice the troops made in order to keep our country safe.. the training they endure, the time away from their loved ones.. and when duty calls, they are separated yet again.. at times like these we acknowledge and appreciate them.. and if some might think, finally the army has something to do, that statement, when we think about it really, is not something we would want.. we'd rather have them train and be prepared than being out there practicing what they have been preparing for.. 

i won't dwell too much on the history of things cuz me, myself ain't really sure about it.. my dad did explained it to me and i did read it in the papers, but i couldn't comprehend it fully.. but whatever it is, there are always other ways to go about it.. peaceful ways.. and that's what we want.. we want to live peacefully.. and to many of us, even after what has happened, we are still living peacefully.. kind of ironic the people who aren't, the people who are fleeing their homes, are mostly the Suluks... 

so let us all just pray that things will go well.. peace will be back in order.. our troops will come home safely to their loved ones.. alive.. tired yet alive.. let there be no more unnecessary spill of blood.. and on another note, with all these going on, i'm proud to be the granddaughter of an army and a policeman.. although i do wish i knew more about them... i wish i learn more about them and their occupation...

Fight hard and come back unharmed!!!
