I just received an email from our yahoogroup that our former Professor in Architecture and a good friend passed away recently due to breast cancer. I am not sure how I am feeling today but my world fell apart upon hearing the news. I never thought that it would happen to her that way too soon. I remember her during my college days as very jolly, approachable and very informative professor especially when it comes to new trends, technology and techniques in architecture. We consider her as more than a friend rather than a professor. She never treated us as her students but more as being friends.
With the prevalent Big C scare especially for us women often affected in the cervix and breast, we really have to find ways to involve in healthy lifestyle. Stress, unhealthy foods, and pollutants really aggravate such kind of sickness and therefore we should combat it with healthy living. When was the last time you really sweat out in the gym or in your favorite sports? Sure we all have our hectic schedules but maybe this weekend, it’s time for us to lace our shoes and do some brisk-walking and jogging in the nearest park.
Madam Emy, wherever you are now, I am sure that you are already in a very safe place with the Lord. May you continue to build new edifice up there…
