2010: Year of Possibilities

Of course the Islamic new years started last week, but now (on the Gregorian calender) it is the start of 2010. In according to the Islamic calender, it is now the year 1431. I hope Allah blesses everyone with a wonderful and healthy year. Insh'Allah.

I must say 2009 did not end well for me. A couple of hours before it hit midnight I was in the town center getting last minute groceries when I saw the most horrifying thing. On the floor in front of the town hall lay a man, not too much older or younger than myself, on the ground covered in blood. I was in too much of a shock. I was mentally not prepared to see this. I don't believe anyone is. There he laid. A pool of blood. Insides on the outside. 

What. A. Mess.

Ya Allah.

The police had just arrived and only about 10 people were there who had also seen the incident. And as I started to walk away so the police could handle the situation - there stood 2 or 3 guys laughing. LAUGHING. What the in the world could they be thinking that would make them laugh while a man lie there dead. I understand perfectly that Allah made people in this world who have no reguard for human life - but when seeing it with my own eyes - it just blows my mind. I found out today that that boy who was laying on the floor died from suicide. He jumped off the - around 7 floors - building.

All we thought about was how horrible it was and how his family would be so devistated to find out their son had gone on new year's eve.

Ya Allah, please do not let me witness more of this in the years to come. Ameen.
On a happier note, I made my very first gingerbread house to drown out the negative thoughts.
