Like it does not make sense on why but you feel like it knocked all the stuffing about you by the sheer magnitude of feelings generated from it!
I recently was reading the news when I stumbled on a horrific abduction in which a young woman, the very same age as me was abducted while on holiday and was subjected to a series of horrific torture by a pair of sick perverts.
warning:Graphic content ahead.
They mutilated her privates with a blowtorch, a screwdriver,and raped her several times.They made her crawl and eat from a dog bowl,naked.They smashed her head daily with a sledgehammer.Little wonder she lost her mind, stabbed one of her kidnappers to a bloody death in his sleep and she chewed through the leash and tried to kill herself afterward. Oh god.I read this, this horrific piece of news that seemed so surreal , it seemed like a bad gore porn movie.Something out of a screwed up movie.
She was only twenty one and is currently battling for her life in critical condition in a hospital.
I was so sickened I ran to the bathroom and threw up after reading the article.And even after that the feeling of fear, I have no idea why it affected me so badly was so great I was silent the whole day, ever so often shuddering when i recalled a piece of the article.I stayed close to my mother the whole day that day.Even though I am twenty one.
Then the other news,the mournful funeral of a father and his son who were brutally stabbed to death and how it affected their close knit family brought me to tears.That I can emphasize and understand it.I lost my grandmother three years ago and even though time has come and gone, there will forever be a hole in my heart where she left it.When I read how the widow of one of the son , "...glared at the sky, clenches her fists and stomped her feet.." when they placed her beloved in the cold earth, the feeling of empathy hit me so hard.For on the day they placed my grandmother into the crematorium, I too hugged my parents and brother tight , glared at the sky at the unfairness of life, stomped my feet and gripped my hands so hard, they bled as my nails dig into my palms .I needed bandages, I wished the sting of the antiseptic they dripped in my hands could take the pain in my heart away.She promised me when I was little, that she would attend my wedding, see my children,go on trips with me when I got a job and earned money.My grief coming out in anger at that time and I was furious for weeks and heartsore at her leaving us.I swiped my eyes , went in my room and spent time, listlessly gazing at the ceiling, lost in memories of her as the rain poured down.
But it did remind me to appreciate and love those who loved me while I and they still breathe.Before it is too late.
But I still don't get why the article of how a defenceless girl, granted we are both the same age, and her plight affected me so deeply on an emotional scale.Guess,i'm not that unsympathethic to the plight and horrors of the world i guess? Ha.
And you guys? Did any piece of news affect you all before emotionally?
