Omar

Omar
 
 
I read this article on BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-20466027 three weeks ago and just can't forget about it.
 
Omar was really a picture perfect baby. How sad that he is gone.
It is sad to think how many children die around the world every day.
 
Not long ago I read a good book of a war journalist. He thinks that it is emotional stealing - if tragedy happens to other people and you pretend that your pain is the same as the pain and grief of the people who lost beloved ones.  
 
***
So I think that it is actually really very selfish of all  parents who have their mouths full of words that you can undesrstand pain and grief only if you are a parent. Really selfish!
 
Only Omar's parents (=and all other parents arounds the world who lost children and beloved ones in tragedies) can understand what parents in Newtown feel.

  1. I agree with what you said in this post and your previous post. We feel this sorrow because we are human, not because we are a subset of human (parents).
