Swine flu hits the people I love

Today I was watching TV with my parents when I got the worst phone call in my life. It was a call from my brother and my sister in law who are living abroad telling me that they got infected with the swine flu virus! I was so overcome with emotion that I had to leave the living room so quick so my parents wont notice a thing. They told me that my nephew caught it from some kid in summer camp and he passed to his baby sister who is only one year old and then to his mom and dad!!!

I was crying on the phone but they reassured me that they are OK and they are all responding to the medication but all I'm thinking of is getting on the first plane to go and see them.

I know everyone is telling me its fine and the media is just blowing it out of proportion but I can't help but worry about them. especially the kids and how young they are 7abaybee.

of course I didn't tell my mom the news because she will go crazy but I had to tell my dad and he was emotional but I had to tell him its like regular flu if they take their medication but deep inside I'm just as worried as he is. I'm worried about the side effect of the medications that they are taking, I'm worried about how well the kids are doing and I can't even imagine the state of mind that my poor sister in law is in with worrying about her babies.

I'm praying for them... 3asa allah ye7afethum bas we6ameni 3aleehum eb asra3 wagat.
Please pray with me and please reassure me that it is ok and I'm only overreacting :(

We can forgive but we will never forget

I remember back in August 2005 when a dear blogger (Sarah/Papillona) started the campaign of We can forgive but we will never forget and I think it's only appropriate to remember that day and remind everyone that we can forgive but we will NEVER FORGET 2/8/90.
