I can’t believe that I skipped almost 2 months without updating my blog; I guess I’m way too busy with my real life and facing too many problems at the same time. I don’t even have time to update my other social networking sites.
It’s been a saddening month for me as I lost one of my closest friends from my childhood. When I first heard the news, I couldn’t even function and my tears kept falling and I don’t know if I will believe it or not. There’s something I’ve wanted to tell him for so long, and not about any affection. I feel like I want to blame myself for not going there during the time my best friend told me to visit him because he’s weak. I don’t know if he’s in the hospital or what because they didn’t give me the full details. So I thought, it’s just normal sick. I posted something on his Facebook, I thought that he’s active and just realized that it was a spam application. Last August 27th, I asked how he is; at first I thought he’s ignoring me, ‘cause there’s a wall post every day. I felt terrible even after a week or so, and he died… His mom passed away 2 years ago and his dad left them earlier this year, so only he and his sister are living alone and his brother has his own family. His sister cannot afford to bring him to the hospital and what sucks is you cannot live in this country if you don’t have money.
You don’t have a choice between life and death without money. The only choice you have is death and that is the reason why he died. If only the hospitals in this country helped out people who can’t afford to pay medicine or anything just to rescue their lives. That would be one of the greatest changes that this country could ever offer. There are only few percent of hospitals who have a kind enough heart to let people live when they don’t have money. I really, really hate talking about money, and I hate that the world cannot function without money and that we need to live and deal with it.
R.I.P. Philip Lizano, I will miss you, those good times that we had when we are young together with our other friends, those jamming, singing, laughing trips and more… You may be dead physically but you will live forever in our hearts. Take care and we know you’re happy now where you are. We love you…
