In Loving Memory of Nian Ning (1987-2008)
Though I may not know Nian Ning for long, the passing away of this junior of mine at uni is certainly a loss to be mourned - to her family, friends, and even the nation (she was a JPA scholar). Here was a bright and promising girl who had everything at her feet but fate decided that time was up for her. A bus crash robbed her of her life over the weekend - the bus driver (who had 13 summonses) only escaped with a broken leg. It reminds me of how short and unexpected life can be - one moment, one may be laughing away; the next moment, that same person's gone with the wind. It shouldn't have happened. But it has. And the best we can do now is pray and reflect upon it. My heartfelt condolences go out to her family. To Nian Ning, may you rest in peace. You will always be missed.
