A fire in the neighborhood

mum's car was not working, a problem in the battery, my brother went down to make it work so mum can drive with it to work. any way me and my other brother and cousin (who came from Benghazi and staying with us for some days) went down to take the other car and start our day, we couldn't locate our brother , when looking for him, we found that there was a flat on fire, maybe some of you would hear of it , the fire in Nasr Street, the fire was burning the whole flat down and it took the fire 10 minutes to be everywhere, any way , both of my brothers went in, there was a girl stuck inside and my brother went in to get her out, he could not and he got some second degree burns. a fireman (we've met in the hospital who happened to be at the fire place too and came to the hospital l) said that my brother was lucky not to get worse burns. It was really a shock to see my brother like that, this is when you know how much you love someone , when you think you might loose him/her, I freaked out and I couldn't say a word.

After my brother got out , the firemen arrived and they got the girl out of the window using stairs, but they couldn't do anything about the fire, because the firemen truck's tanks were empty, imagine ?!! if it's empty why is it on duty? why did they take the time and effort to come to the fire place with this huge thing? Daaaah!!

Another thing , the reason of the fire, some of us thought it's because of the heaters, some of gas, the reason is more ironicly unexpected, you know now they are installing this new external watt meter for the houses in Tripoli, there was a mistake in installing it and something was missing, the wires were connected directly without passing through the part which protects the house from changing current. that morning , the current went down and suddenly up and the whole flat exploded. some of our relatives said that they had the same problem with their meter too and the collector guy warned them about that mistake, it maybe any where , if you have a new external watt meter , check it !!

These days people come and visit us for my brother , you know how it is in libya , news spread fast and you spend days making tea and coffee. I'm exhosed.

At the end , I'm glad that everybody in that house got out safe and I'm so proud of my brothers :)

we meet people, some we like, some we fall in love with!!

When I meet someone for the first time , either I've heard about before or not, I might like him/her, by time I see new things in that person that I didn't notice in the beginning, some gain my respect , some loose it.

There some people that you just fall in love with as soon as you see them , like a crush, even if I meet them once a year or every two years, somehow I feel them close to me, I'm glad when I hear good news related to them, and feel sad and worried when something wrong or bad happens to them. I call it true love which is regardless of any factors that might affect a relationship.

I haven't meet so many people who I have this feeling for, and for those I have, I wish they know how much I love them.

Prayers for Mrs. Kh. G.

Australian Open is over

I was hoping that Roger Federer to win Australian Open, but I'm glad that Nadal won it too and that they gave each other hard time , really really enjoyable game, I followed the match by radio on the site and wish that I was there watching the game.
