白頭人送黑頭人 / A Parent's Nightmare


五月十七日早晨,他在朦朧中聽到电臺新聞報告,一個駕自行車的學生哥,在嘉靈道 Carling Avenue 被車撞斃,警方正找尋死者的親屬。

父母的噩夢!!!

是自己的孩子嗎? B仔的自行車還在屋前嗎? 他出外有戴保護頭盔嗎? 電話鈴鈴地響了,一陣無名的恐懼, 濕透一身的冷汗 !!!

『喂?』孩子在楼下接了电話。

總希望是別人的孩子,總希望是別人的噩夢,一個自私的父親朦朧地進回夢鄉,回到那只有黑頭人送白頭人的美好世界裏。

在城巿的另一边,一個母親在飲泣著。

每天打開報紙,看見有人遇到甚麼甚麼意外而傷亡,心總會想,如果這個是自己、或是自己的親人會怎樣!

Here are my thoughts:

* If there is something a person wants to say to another, say it now.
* The sudden death will be shocking and heart-breaking, but time will heal slowly (altho in the case of a child's death, a parent will never get over the pain).

One of the reasons why I wrote the blog article.

For parents with young kids, this type of news is nightmarish and too close for comfort. Many have learnt to block out the possibility - just like the father in the story.

I had been tru the process just last year...my brother. Luckily he survived and until now still not fully recovered, after a year's treatment, dressing etc and its ongoing. For the moment, we got the news, things changed and we are still going tru the changes. I did not say much about this incident...even up to now cos things are still difficult to cope. Sometimes i just set aside all issues...pretending I am ok.
