Story time

When he was having a military training, V heard some shocking news. His father, who was not even 50 years old, had died. So V went home to his sisters, brother and mother, took on charge the funeral, and was back to his military training the following day.

It happened all so quickly, that V didn’t get the time to accept his father’s death, to mourn and to grieve with his family.

The training he had that day, was held in the wild. The place was a bit familiar to V. It was close to the cemetery. That’s when it all got real for V; his late father is underground, right next to where he’s supposed to train.

V didn’t hesitate to ask his boss if he could go to his father’s tomb to read some verses of Quran. To his surprise, The answer was no.
He got upset; his boss seems to had lost his mercy and pity somewhere along the way, V felt like his father was already forgotten, his memory was being erased.
V calmed himself down, and continued his training. All he could think of that day was the meaningless cruelty of his chief, but eventually, he could let it go.
Years and years went by, and V got himself a beautiful wife, a big house, and had amazing children, and never forgot his father, he was always speaking about him, showing pictures of him to his kids and telling them about his memories with his old man.
But most of all, V made it a habit, to take his children on a regular basis to the tomb of his father, and listen to them reading some small verses of Quran that they learned in school.
Listening to his kids, V realized that he succeeded, through the years, to resurrect the memory of his father.
