When I lost my Friend to Death

Oh Death! why do you do this to us? why do you snatch from us the ones dear to our heart?It was a dry Saturday morning. I was standing in front of the old church building where I received my baptism. And as I trod towards the entrance; the cold biting wind lashed my tender skin, reminding me of the harsh realities that my body had to endure as long as I live. As I stepped into the chapel, it seems dim and a pensive mood hanged over everyone seated. He was just 15 years old, strong, energetic and a happy going individual who, some few months ago escaped a gas explosion. I met him a week ago, exactly in this same church. We talked about our future and what we planned to do with it. Evan told me how he plans on becoming a civil engineer. He wants to take over his dad construction business....

Can You Love Someone Unconditionally? We know we need to love unconditionally but it seems hard to achieve this ideal. It could be our misunderstanding of what the term means or we don’t know in which way to act to love our significant others unconditionally. What Does Unconditional Love Mean To You?

If doing so help you and you partner or friends come to solutions that solve your challenges, great. Arguing against an issue is not bad in itself so long as it is constructive and produces a solution. But it is fruitless to engage in a baseless and destructive argument: One that is based on who is right rather than what is right. Arguing to be right only leads to resentments and doesn't bring any long lasting resolution to an impeding misunderstanding. It is always be
