Our school newspaper’s official twitter dropped a bomb awhile ago and it hit me hard. It was a news stating the death of one of our schoolmate. She was a batch higher and was a stranger to me but I took the news personally.
She was rushing to school, I saw, ’cause she had an exam that morning. Then the news goes on to say how her car crashed at a wall in White Plains. Maybe she was driving too fast, too recklessly just to get to that exam on time? Or maybe there was an unsuspecting car she was about to hit so she swerved. Wrongly. Nevertheless, it goes to show how short and unexpected life is – how people take it for granted.
I thought it should’ve been me instead.
