逝者安息,活者珍惜

I was going thru Sin Chiew Daily online and came across this article.

~~~

在麻坡車禍中喪命的4名父子,如今並排躺在日落洞殯儀館內,4張遺照放置在靈堂上,令致祭者無不感到鼻酸。

看著白髮人一夜間失去一個兒子、三個孫子,還有一位身為人妻者,也在一夜間失去一個丈夫和三個孩子,我的心情也覺得難受。

無情車禍毀天倫樂

靈堂是寧靜的,氣氛卻是傷感的,一場車禍就這樣毀掉了一份天倫樂,活下來的人需要多少勇氣才能夠勇敢的生活下去。

這2天,報章都大篇幅的報導兩宗大車禍,共有逾10條生命在車禍中喪失。

這些悲劇,是否能讓許許多多的公路使用者覺醒,明白馬路如虎口,一不小心將令許許多多家庭從此失去歡笑的道理呢?

駕車小心死神遠離

其實,只要大家在公路上都慢一點、大家都小心一點、大家都禮讓一點,死神就會遠離大家多一點。

而且,自己的小心除了保障本身的安全,同時,更能保障其他公路使用者的安全,大家也就能夠歡歡喜喜出門,平平安安回家了。

從殯儀館回到報館,想起一位朋友曾對我說過這番話:“如果你是個有情有愛的人,那就請你每一天都將你自己平安的送到你愛的人面前!”

因此,我希望逝者能安息,活者能珍惜!

To my friends, I guess that's a very obvious lesson what unworthy accidents road accidents are.

As hot headed youngsters, most of us are still greenhorns and inexperience.

As always, those who can drive fastest are the best...

But it's a shame when you face unwanted consequences and bring so much misery to people that love you.

So, drive carefully mates. Speed Kills.

A part of my heart left with the bits of my car door as I saw the "ma-gart" fellow slashed thru it... What was supposed to be 2 small holes (due to rust) on my car door became 2 patches of aluminium slug.

It did solve the problem, but it left an eyesore on my car. Though my car's an old one (18 years old), but I still love it very much.

It's engine is still quite good, and it's a reliable car, which watch me grow up.

I should have just put some nice stickers and cover the holes in the first place.
