My Cam wasn't charged so I took these with my mobile.

A Hole in my Heart
Let me tell you a story. The past two days I wasn’t feeling that well. Stress and a little doubt are weighing me down. Working on a new recipe and can't get the flavor right. It is for one of our top clients and we have to send him a sample this Thursday. Abdulaziz has two tests this week and he is stressing me more. Alwalad hatha ma'7the alderasa le3eb. It is a shame there isn't a Military school here in Kuwait. I'd be the first parent to enroll her kids in it. Anyway, I'm so tired I decided to steal an extra hour of sleep this morning before I got up for work. The AC is still not on and it was a bit stuffy. So Fahad opened the window for me. A cool breeze blew in and with the sounds of traffic outside I was lulled back to sleep. Twenty minutes later I hear a screech then a big boom! I got up and looked outside the window. One single car badly damaged from the front. I can't see the other one from the angle of where I was standing. Cars slow down but none stop to assist the people who were hit. I waited and no one stopped!!! It really burned a hole in my heart! I call the driver and ask him to see to the people in the car and assist them. He tells me there is a lady in the pretty banged up car, and a man in the car which I couldn't see. He calls 777. They respond quickly by sending an ambulance and seconds later a squad car joins them. A male nurse jumps from out of the ambulance and rushes to the car. He assists a tiny lady out. She was leaning heavily on him. The poor lady looked so small and venerable I wanted to scream at the people. Since when people stopped helping other people here in Kuwait??? E7na derat al'7air oo el3a6a, and we don't pass a chance in helping people. It appalled me that no one stopped their cars to look and help! The worst emotion is indifference! Being indifferent starts the decline of humanity!
