You are everything for me Ali Farzan
I was surprised at my behaviour in the class yesterday. It was the first time I was asking questions as I was used to in the fall semester. In the break I thought what made me come out of the silo. I re looked at the topic. It was maths-something I dislike. I recalled my questions to check if I was asking stupid things. Then I reached to the actual reason. I forgot that I wont find you when reaching home. I had forgotten that reality Ali Farzan. You were my strength, you were my power.
In today’s class we had a discussion about language learning and I shared how you learned English. I was so excited while describing your efforts to make friends in Brisbane. I saw you once made gestures to a lady sitting in front of us in train, waved to people at bus stops, and ran behind kids in the park. You tried ways to come out of the isolation due to your incapability to speak in English. After sharing your experience I felt the emptiness your departure has given to me. I told you only few times but I was used to refer to you a lot in the classes in the fall semester. You made me know about the latest happenings in Education here. Do you recall the website of Shelby county we were used to visit to download the learning objectives. It was as you were holding my hand and guiding me about the education system here.
Ali Farzan you were everything for me. You think you are gone. You are not. You are everything for me. I am sure you are happy. You were a great learner. You knew how to adjust according to the environment. I am sure you have adjusted yourself in Heaven. Stay blessed.
