    Physically challenged with a twin sister and staying alone in a room? How? Rooms are very expensive, no way she could be staying alone. She has died from serious and discriminated loneliness.If she was physically challenged, I mean disabled, why her sister was not looking after her.Discrimination in purest form indeed. All the same, Esther rest in peace

    Physically challenged is not a good way of describing people. Next time use something like Disabled.

    1. November Rain says:

      “Physically challenged” is better, more neutral, and more diplomatic than “disabled”; so it is said in our modern-day interaction.

    O……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………O
    No matter how many you have written in life,
    No matter how powerful the mind is;
    . . . exams are always stressful; and stress, anxiety, or depression, if left unattended can kill.
    ………………………………………………………………………..
    We need to check on, and encourage each other therefore in such times, especially when the mountain seems too high and too steep to climb, and stress levels too high (to manage) hence shocks too much and intense (to absorb).
    . . . Otherwise, it’s sad to die this young and learned!

    Very sad. Here in Lilongwe this year we have witnessed such very sad moments. A girl or a boy complains of headache in the morning, in the evening s/he is gone. A very dangerous type of malaria indeed. May caused by Plasmodium faciparum? Hospital people know this that malaria has claimed so many lives this rainy season than before. RIP young lady.
