Death of Three Innocent Brothers
December 3, 2006 in Local Politics, Social Activism & Religious Matter, Youth & Children's Issues
Words cannot describe how broken-hearted and angry I was when I read that these three innocent brothers died for the mistakes that their parents had made. Another example of the scourge that is loan-sharks and the money-lending racket. It may be yesterday’s news, but it still troubles me deeply that three innocent kids have their short lives on Earth cut short by miserable low-lifes who is unworthy to be their parents!
But I guess I could find solace in the fact that I know very well that the three boys are now in heaven, safe in the arms of God and comforted forevermore.
But still, how could their parents do such a dastardly act?? If they want to end their lives, spare the kids, damn it! And the remorseless father is worried more about the wife than his dead children! Regardless of the reason they did what they did, I wish for the stiffest of punishments to befall these two good-for-nothing adults who has deprived their other families and the friends of the boys the company of their three obviously precious and well-loved sons.
They have no right to blame their actions on the loan sharks – who asked them to borrow money from them? They should’ve known what the consequences would be when you’re dealing with loan sharks, many of whom belong to the underworld and it is not beneathe them to harass their “clients” to the point of suicide and desperation to repay their debts.
The authorities seriously need to do something with this money-lending racket. So many families have been torn asunder by this scourge monopolised by the Malaysian underworld. But I won’t be surprised if some of these powerful loan sharks have already bought off the authorities and have connections to powerful, influential politicians. We’ve seen this happen in Hong Kong movies – true, it may be the movies, but fiction is always inspired by real-life.
Please, please, whatever you do – DON’T BORROW MONEY FROM LOAN SHARKS!!! IT’LL ONLY END IN MORE UNNECESSARY SUFFERING FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR PRECIOUS LOVED ONES. There’s always a better alternative! Killing yourself and your loved ones is not the way to solve things, it’s a cowardly thing to do. Get help from the right people, people such as the Befrienders are always, ALWAYS on hand to help you!
I pray that we will not see tragedies which has befallen the Seah family in the media ever again. I appeal to anyone who knows of families who are in dire straits to get them help before they do something destructive like this! Where is your sense of neighbourliness? I, for one, will not hesitate to stop Mr Seah from doing what he did had I known or suspect that he will. I am sad that the Seahs’ other family members did not lend a hand to counsel them and assist them…blood thicker than water? Obviously that’s not the case with the Seah family.
Enough is enough. I’m sick of it all. I wish I could stop reading the news forever…I don’t know how many stories of humanity’s sufferings that I can take before it drains out all whatever that’s left of my sense of faith and hope in humankind. *Weeps*
To the boys: Seah Siew Tong, eight, Siew Mun, 10 and Siew Cheung, 12 – I pray that your souls rest in peace up there in heaven. The worst is over for all of you now.
