sometimes,there are just some things in in our life that we could not understand... The story goes this way: I have a friend is in its 5th year (his last year) in BS Chemical Engineering studies in the most prestigous school in the country. His family is so pooor that could not send him to college. Fortunately, he was able to get a scholarship to cover his tuition and other school-realated fees but not with allowance. Because of his perseverance, this friend of mine was able to reach his 5th year in college (he is supposed to graduate this year). He did extra jobs at night (like serving as waiter in a restaurant, wash clothes for others and etc...) while studying in the morning. Despite of these, he managed to excel as an engineering student. However, three weeks ago, he was brought to the hospital (that was the time when the start of 1st semester begun) and diagnosed of pneumonia and tuberculosis...Probably, with much depression, he lost his sanity after a week. The doctors, of course recommended for psychiatric treatment. (By the way, in October of last year, their house in the province was wrecked by a very strong typoon. I just pity him so much. All he wanted is for him to finish his studies and help his family out of poverty. But now,...I don't know if he still have the chance to realize his degree. Sometimes I wonder why these things happen...Why\ wthere are people who have all the resources in this world and can't afford to stay good in their studies.I just wonder why...sometimes... I don't know...

I used to wonder why and why and why too. Things unexpected do happens. That's life. In my opinion, we just have to accept it and make the best out of it. Perhaps I have accepted the law of cause and effects, and hence more at peace with whatever that happens. What is needed is a positive attitude. Whatever that happens is never a coincidence. There's always a reason for it. Perhaps it is meant to train us to make lemonade out of a lemon? I do not believe that god is here to put us down with all those that happens. There's got to be a pony in that pool of manure :P
