It is shocking and however amazing when you see sad, crying and heart break smiley with the deceased pictures almost on all profile DP’s, the very moment the passing away of the deceased is announced. Everyone becomes a poet, giving attributes about 70% the deceased never knew he or she ever possessed while on earth. At death, the deceased becomes famous and possibly the best person who ever lived, you begin to see all kinds of pictures you have never seen.
Like I will always ask, why will you wait until someone dies to show them how much you “cared” if at least the person meant anything to you?
Did you ever pick up your phone to call that person while he or she was alive? Where you aware of the challenges the person was passing through? Did they ever win your DP at least once even on their birthdays? Have you ever knelt down to pray for them even if it was five (5) minutes? Were you known as a friend indeed? Did you ever give them the love and attention they craved for while they were still alive? If 80% of your answers to the above questions are NO, then you sincerely have no right to put up a crying smiley and display picture (dps) at their departure.
Many of them died out of depression, rejection, pain et al and not for one day did you go on your kneels to sincerely pray for them. Many would have survived if we cared just a little bit more, if we visited or called more often to know what was going on with them, many wouldn’t have died of high blood pressure if they had someone to talk to without being judged. Why wait until you lose a friend or loved one before you show the “world” how much of a “friend” you were?
You have a role to play in everyone’s life. God did not bring them into your life for nothing. We all have duties and responsibility to carry out in each other’s life.
Can you make a fresh commitment today to love, care and pray for everyone God has brought into your life? Will you call them and genuinely find out how they are doing at least once every month? Will you let them know how much you love and appreciate them? Will you love them enough to use them as your display picture on their birthdays and every other day, telling them how important they are to you? Will you be the first to check up and continue even when they don’t seem to appreciate you in return knowing that you are sowing a seed that will bring forth fruit sooner than expected?
The truth is you have no right to mourn on Blackberry messenger, Facebook, twitter or on any other social network if you haven’t paid your dues as a true friend.
Write those poems now when they are alive not when they are dead.
You have no business keeping 1000 contacts on blackberry if you can’t give account of each and every one of them at the end of every month (except you are a marketer though)
Don’t forget that the greatest commandment is LOVE!!!
I ask again, Where is the love?
