I am deeply saddened by news I heard today about a local young man, Tawab Ebadi, who passed away last night/early this morning in a fatal car crash.  It's always a dose of reality when you hear of another young person passing away.  Although nothing in life is expected, especially the moment we take our last breath, sometimes in the back of our minds is a comforting, pacifying notion that we will all live until we are old.  This is far from true, but it's something we assure ourselves of. This news invoked so many thoughts--far beyond what I expected.  That's usually how something shocking works though, eh?

You can read about the news here: NBC Local Crash

One can't help to reflect on how whenever we meet people or look at our friends, family, or our own reflections in the mirror--we never know what tomorrow brings.  We should always remind those around us how much we love them or appreciate them and never sever ties.  Life is too precious to be wasted.

My own beloved cousin, Masood Omar died from a fatal car crash and the news today brought back memories of him more than ever.  He is greatly missed.

I pray Tawab's loved ones are granted ease and comfort at a time like this and that the Most Merciful grants us support to be appreciative and mindful of our present.  Ameen.

إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ

Inna lilLahi wa inna ilayhi raji`oon.

Verily, unto God do we belong and, verily, unto Him we shall return.
