A True story from #ET409

It was her birthday, but there was a death in the family, so she went to pay her condolences and told her parents they’d celebrate her birthday once she comes back from her business trip to Gabon… She has traveled this route many times and yet this time something was different – she really felt that she did not want to go! She was envious of her colleague, whose daughter was sick and who had the chance not to travel on that day and join in on the exhibition later. She really did not want to travel… After packing her stuff, she handed her car keys to her flatmate and she told her: “if anything happens to me, like the plane crashes … give these to my parents and tell them I really love them!”

She was the daughter of my mother’s friend… and she died on that plane crash…

When my mother was telling me this on the phone I felt really spooked out and really touched… and that is exactly why I wanted to share this with you… This raises many questions and many emotions in me…

Should we trust our feelings no matter how paranoid they get?

My deepest condolences to all who have been touched by this tragedy.

    Excellent post darine – My condoleances for every family involved in that plane :( You story raised also emotions in me :(
    Its hard to always follow ur feelings especially when they get pretty paranoid, its a very controversial but interesting question to raise.
    When i decided to privatise my stream, it was a paranoia-driven decision. I still cant know if i made the right decision or not
