A Thoughtful Saturday

Yesterday's incidence frightened me again as if I haven't been hearing about it before. It's death. I don't like hearing the death of someone I know or close to me, it gives me the sad emotion that I don't easily take it off.

The death of my colleague yesterday was another thing entirely and a black Friday for my department. He was involved in a ghastly accident on his bike and was rushed to trauma center. He was pronounced dead yesterday morning and after some minutes, we were told he blinked and immediately was attended to and was responding to treatment until he finally gave up.

Just three months to graduate with us, death took him away. What a great loss to our department and the family. It was really sad and pathetic but what do we do?

He would be the second student to die in my department now and we are left to question death why he would just take this man away from us at the verge of his graduation?

This is why we always pray to God never to allow death show up when we are making it or about to do something great.

Why would death show up suddenly when we do not expect it?

Why should death disgrace us by taking someone we are looking up to?

Why didn't death come announcing to us that he is coming for us?

Inasmuch as we understand that the wicked will perish, does it takes along the innocent too?

Shouldn't there be difference between the impeccant and the flagitious?


It was another moment for me to rethink about my life yesterday and checking how I have lived it and how I will still live it because I don't know when it would be but I never prayed or wished for it to be soon.

But it is really ludicrous to see a parent who had suffered so hard to bring up a child to a level he or she would start helping the parent and death comes knocking without being informed, and then snatch such child away. Just like that? Unto a world no one knows.

Oh death! What if we keep begging?

Oh death! What if we know your abomination?

Oh death! Don't you think it's too early to take the young and innocent ones away?

Oh death! What if you had come with a stern warning for such individual, he would know what to do to avoid you (death)

But do we have a choice? We all are indebted to death and we will all taste death one day.


The best is to keep checking our lives to see how we have lived it. Be good to people so your name would forever be remembered.

Do you know a good name is better than riches and wealth?

You may have wealth and be stickingly rich but when you die without protecting your name, it is useless because no one would talk about you in a good way but bad way.

In fact, if you are poor and you lived a wicked life, your name will be rubbed off the earth.

The best is to protect your name so well either you are rich or not.

My colleague who died was a shock to everyone because he was still in school on Monday to Wednesday until the bad incidence. People started talking about the good he has done. I know his name will forever be remembered in their hearts.


It's another weekend here again. I don't want to dwell too much on death but I know we all would start thinking and praying for the best in our lives. I pray no one would die before his time in our families.

Despite what happened yesterday, I was still in a happy mood because at the end of the day, I was able to quote the scripture that says "in everything, give thanks to God".

Yes, despite what has happened, we can't bring the dead back but give thanks to God especially we that we are still alive.


Let's be reminded that without working hard, we won't achieve the best. Though, it is not of him that willeth or runneth, but it is of God that showeth mercy. Do your best and leave the rest to Him. Do not overwork yourself. When you have done what you need to do and are satisfied with it but no result yet, just look up to God and commit into His hand.

God also knows you have tried but you need to relax and give your body rest when need be.

Thanks for reading

We all know that no one knows our death exempt God. As long as we lived, we must give a good legacy to people, because if we die. People remembered us.

Death why nahnn, just at the peg of success, you came to take him away, where will I start form, it about the days he spent in both tertiary and higher institution ? Or even about his parents that hoped he will pass out to get a work? It's so painful, I don't like hearing about students death, just a month ago ,three students where knock down by a car and where all dead, it's indeed a great lost.

But in all things , just like you said, we give thanks to God. That's why we have to live every of our life as it was our last . The Impact we made in the world we speak for us when we are no more.

Our life is really uncertain, we do not know when and where we will be an victim of death just like others who are not in this world. We should do good deeds to others this is the thing by which we will always be remembered by people. This news broke my heart, he/ she is too young for this, but we have to accept this fact coz death do not choose her victim by judging their age. I hope he/she will get a place in Heaven.

This is very heartbreaking and a sad occurrence, death truly is a respecter of no man and it can come at any moment. I also lost a classmate a few months ago after out ladt semester exam, she just slept and didn't wake up the next morning.

The way people lost their lives in accidents always scares and I keep thinking; what if the same thing happens to me one day? I keep thanking God for keeping me safe, it's not by own power. Condolences to his family as well as to the entire department, may his gentle soul rest in peace

I am always scared too when I am traveling but should we say we won't travel again because of that? We only need to keep begging for Mercy and safe trip for us all. May God spare our lives.

First I'm sorry to read the story. It's really a big loss, losing someone at the peak of reaching their dream, I can't imagine how was the hardship of him to finish school yet destiny gives it more. Life and death were really unpredictable and uncontrolled.

Sometimes I find that a very funny phenomenon . I mean it's something that we all will come to us someday but it still comes as a shock when we hear the news of a person's death. We should make the most of the limited time you have here on this earth and give thanks to God for giving us an opportunity to serve him and others. May the soul of your friend rest in peace.

There are situations that we just need to give thanks and accept whatever comes our way.

Everyone is sure that death will come but only those that have their name written on the heart of others can look death in the eye and smile while the families and friends will keep questioning death why it took their family away.

Nevertheless, add death to your plan and do good to everyone. No one knows when...

Sorry to hear that my dear princess. Well, whether we like it or not, death is unpredictable. This life we have right now, we just have it temporarily, God owns. And whether we like ot not, He has the full authority if he will get it back, may it sooner or later. As what they say, "Live life to fullest" and Live each day as if it is the Last."

You have no one to blame, God has a purpose for everything in life. All you need to just keep doing is to thank God for he giveth and taketh away without anyone to query him. What he graduated and ran mad or becomes a liabilities to his family, thank God for his life only that he came he saw but Couldn't conquer.
