Holy Week is a time to commemorate the suffering and death of Jesus Christ. In the Philippines, it is also an occassion where families get together. I was talking to my cousins few days ago and after hearing their excitement of spending Holy Week in our place makes me jealous. But yesterday afternoon we heard a bad news that my grandfather(we call tatay) died after suffering a lung illness. I feel so helpless now that I wanted to go home but I can't. I don't want to face this kind of situation. It is so difficult being far away from my family specially when someone dies. But anyway, I must accept and treat it on a positive way that my grandpa is now at peace after suffering that illness for more than 15 years.
