We often come across people trying to turn as sympathetic as possible, when trying to calm down a loved one who’s recently hit by a tragedy.
They somehow turn and twist their statements in manner, as if they are really sorry for whatever happened. They often end up with a heartless conclusion that maybe- it could not be averted and one should try utilizing the pain to win the world in their own ways.
All this seems not only strange, but also cruel to me at some point of time. But as I moved ahead in life, I realized that whatever the mourners had to say at times was both genuine and tested.
Recently, I came across another piece of news, which further cements my young faith in the power of tragedies.
A Glee download would instantly reveal, fans are aware and going crazy over the talent that oozes out of Heather Morris, a professional dancer in the show.
What they are not aware of is the incident that sculpted the 24-year-old Heather Morris, as we know today out of an absolute nobody.
Though we do not expect a 14-year-old to think about her talents and her goals in life, we also do not expect her/ him to take charge of life with complete focus on her divine gifts.
Till Heather was fourteen, she lived a normal carefree life under the shade of her parents like any other girl of her age would. But then, just when she turned 14 she lost her father – a tragedy that struck the Morris household all of a sudden and changed the way she looked at life, forever.
She took up dancing and tried forgetting everything that her family would have to compromise on, after her father’s death. And today, Heather Morris is a figure in the showbiz world to watch out for.
That’s sheer bravado Heather, atta girl!
