Never Forget Fatima Zahra

Fatima Zahra was a normal girl like any other girl, attending her school regularly, playing with her age friends at the schoolyard and having her own innocent dreams. She did not imagine that a bad story would happen to her soon. As a result, she would lose her sight and hearing and meet her death slowly but surely.

Fatima Zahra was a poor girl. She caught cancer in early age, and shortly lost her sight and hearing. Her parents were in great need of miner necessities. This was why they could not afford to pay her therapy and surgery costs. Her parents had a dual pain yet in silence: a pain of poverty and another of disease. The mother felt worried about her daughter’s health, and so, she knocked the doors of the public hospitalities nationwide hoping to run into a humane heart. All her attempts were meet with denial and negligence by the people in charge.

Unfortunately, Fatima Zahra slept in her place, trying to struggle, for nearly a few months before she surrendered to death. With this unforgettable and painful death, I discovered two faces of our society. The society using a face to see the truth and the other to overlook it. Nevertheless, it has become the norm to hear such a story on daily basis.

At the end of the day, Fatima Zahra breathed her last breath today morning after she had said loudly and widely that she needed a human help. She bided Farwell to humankind after expressing her great pain.

To crown it all, some people fall in love with money and forget humanity.
