Today is a very sad day as the news of a suicidal incident broke the whole community. It was so surprising for us and very sudden. We couldn't believe what happened and we couldn't answer our common question of "why and what's the reason"? With the incident being known to almost all of the residents it also gather different impressions and become the talk of the town. But today I don't want to talk here about the incident to answer the 5 W's and the H but to give you my observation and personal ideas as to how the people responded into this incident.
Most of the reactions that you could drew is the sadness towards the incidents, followed by the condolences to the bereaved family, then become curious as to what happened, why and how. Because of these many would be exchanging speculations and drawing conclusions. Some of these would end blaming to few individuals as to whom to pin point to be the culprit of the crime. And then continuously spreading the false idea.
Now? Where's the sincerity of the first reaction there? Are they really genuinely sad, caring towards the bereaved family? Or does the pain and struggles that the bereaved family faced matters to them?
I guess, looking intently to there faces and the words that come out to them together with the action they gave, I could barely say they are all true. Or I am the only one whose feeling such indifference. Or maybe I am the one who really don't care. I don't know but the way they responded the situation making the whole bereaved family feel worst. Yes, I don't have the right to judge them all. But to me the best respond and to this matter is TO SILENCE.
I prefer to remained silence. When they asked me about it and I answer I don't know. They would be surprised because I am a neighborhood and don't know the talk of the town? Yes and no. Yes, I am a neighbor and yes I know the incident just this morning as well. But no, I don't want to talk about it because I may hurt the bereaved family. Aside from the condolence that I could give and the prayer of the soul that pass, I can't help anything else but to remain silent. Respect the soul, the loss and the grieving family.
Maybe that's what the people should have done. But I can't deprived them their freedom of expression and how they would react to the incident. I would give the benifit of the doubt still. Maybe that's how they react to the situation showing how they care and to show their sadness. Every person is different and that made them have the right to react how ever they feel. I just hope they would just be sensitive. Specially to the grieving family.
Suicidal is never a joke. It come from different reasons and different forms. We should be sensitive to the people around us. Be careful to the words we say and the actions we give. Please let us be kind to everyone specially this trying times. Let's not see them us over acting people and just trying to get attention. Let's talk to them, approach them and pray with them. Let's give them hope and spiritual strength in order for them to have courage to walk out from whatever they are struggling with. Let's give them reason to see the world differently. Let's spread love. Let's spread hope.
And to the people who are losing the sense of purpose and feeling demotivated lately, I feel you but please be reminded that God has in stored something bigger and better for us. Let's continue to be hopeful and let God do all the works. Our feeling of unworthiness, doubt and pain made us away from him and to his love. So, please if we feel tired and would love to rest, let us choose to surrender everything to him. And put him in the center of our heart and life and as he promise he will give us rest Matthew 11:28-30
