The Last Few Seconds.

Maybe she was still alive when they blow her up. Maybe she was aware what was going on. Maybe she was too weak to fight back because they must have knocked her good behind the head, or cut her throat. Maybe she could see from the corner of her eyes how they stuff the C4 down her throat or sliced open the flesh underneath her armpits to insert it in, connected it to the blasting cap and KABOOOM!
You need to be trained to be able to blow someone up like that and go to bed as if you've just slaughtered a chicken for family dinner. Ordinary men, or women, who have never slaughtered a goat won't be able to do something like that and move on with life as if nothing ever happened. You gotta be specially trained for something like that. They've got to hardened you up inside so you can look at someone in the eye and shoot him in the head. You've gotta be trained to find great pleasure in seeing the head breaks into a million pieces the way you run your car over a ripe melon. You've gotta be someone special and I'm sure there are a lot of guys like this out there. Ordinary guys who look like a carpenter, or an ice-cream seller, or a taxi driver, or a garbage man, or a delivery guy, or a clerk. They don't look like action heroes you see in the movies. They don't have bulging biceps, or a chiseled jaw that could cut a metal bar into 3 slices in less than 4 seconds.
After they blew her up they probably gave one another a high-five for the job well done, went for a drink the way stock brokers do after a long trading day. It was probably just another job for these well-trained guys. They probably didn't know who it was that they just blew up, some one's daughter, or some one's girl friend. Whoever she was someone somewhere wanted her annihilated and deleted out of this world without a trace. But somehow, someone somewhere talked and retraced her last few days in Malaysia before she met death in one big explosion just like the new year's fireworks.
From the windy plains of Mongolia, she was all alone deep in the secondary jungle in Malaysia and gone forever with just a piece of bone. I'm sorry for you, ma'am. I am truly sorry. This shouldn't have happened to someone as beautiful as you.

Dear Bergen,

First time leaving comment, baca you dah lama dah ;-)

Yup, you are right. That person who blown her up to pieces must have one cold heart. Cannot be a normal human being like us all.

Good day Bergen

when will her soul be allowed to rest in peace? kesiannya for those left behind to have to relive the tragic moments over and over again.

Elviza: Thank you for visiting, ma'am. Yes, you've got it right there. Those are cold blooded people who did that to her. I'm sure their mother didn't figure that their sons wouldn't turn out like that. Maybe their mother go to bed each night thinking how could something like that came from their womb. I don't think it is right for me to say that in the first place because I don't know what would ever become of me tomorrow. I believe each of us has the potential to be something we can't figure today. Let's hope we won't turn out bad. Let's hope we remain the way we are until it's time for us to go down.

Kak Teh: Yes, ma'am. The people who have to relive the moments in full details, I believe they are the real victims in this case. Imagine what the parents have to go through long after the trial is over and those responsible get what they deserve. And the parents of the suspects, I'm sure they too suffer from things people say. Maybe to the suspects it was just a single action but the consequences won't be easily erased just like that. One single action and look how at how many people who have got to pay for their action.

To the parents out there, this could happen both ways.

Only Allah knows why this has to happen. We just gotta take it in being the servant that we are and totally helpless without His help and guidance.

Elviza and Kak Teh, thank you for the visit. You have a nice day now, y'hear. Stay safe, stay alert, watch your back. It's rough out there.

Dear bergen

For whatever reason...a normal person in her/his right mind would never have committed such a hideous crime.

I hope & pray justice will be upheld.

I feel the pain of her love ones.

those who blew her up may have no choice... or maybe, they are used to carrying orders... i think that's the case.
