i was watching "HAJJ" with lots of interest this year, i liked the idea of how the saudi TV is transmitting the whole event live, going through people, showing us almost every step of "HAJJ". i guess they did a good job this year..
seriously organizing such an event requires lots of work i mean very hard work.. and every year they come up with new ideas to make it easier and more safe.. can you imagine that a country is hosting 2 million people in addition to it's own citizens and all are gathered in one place !!!!! wow!!!!
But this year sadly two bad accidents happened, first the hotel and today the "mina" incident.
till today's afternoon we were all glad and thankful that the pilgrims managed to finish "el rami"  easily , but sadly 345 were killed...

my brother who went there two years ago was telling me how the authorities there are taking lots of precautions to prevent such accidents, first they renew the whole jamrat bridge, they came up with this idea that the pilgrims will go from one way and when finished they go back from another one,they have changed the shape of the throwing place from circular to oval.. in the coming years they will build a third floor and then a fourth one and so on.. they announce with speakers to the pilgrims with all languages some instructions to follow, as you might have seen how the security people keep a circle in the middle so as to act fast if something happened like today, they keep this space open and empty so they can be able to aid the injured very fast..
what makes me sad is that with all these precautions and effort to make the "HAJJ" so organized and accidents free, still every year some have to die...

may god bless the ones who passed away ..

Ohhh how tired i am at this moment, it was a hectic day, but i liked it :)
As i said before i just love "el wa2feh" with all the "3aj2a" it brings.. i spent the whole day going from one place to another bringing stuff for tomorrow..i tend to keep some stuff till today so as to feel the spirit of 3eed..
I'm the one in charge of bringing the "ma3mool" and chocolate for the house, it's my job to search for new places to buy "ma3mool" from, (yeah we don't have a homemade ma3mool :P) and this is one of the things i enjoy, trying new places.. sometimes i get a credit for doing my job right and sometimes i'm just criticized for the choice i made. so it's not an easy job after all :P this time seems i'll get some credit ;)

every "wa2feh" and every "3eed" i just feel so blessed, for so many things, for being able to get the things i want , for being able to celebrate "3eed" without having to worry about anything in the world, for and for.......... they're just countless..
I keep reminding my self that "3eed" isn't an ornament we buy to decorate our houses with but it's more about feelings, to feel with those that can't enjoy "3eed" for so many reasons and to do our best to bring joy and happiness to them as much as we can...
feelings for the ones close to us, to appreciate, to connect and to be a better person..

we all remember "3eed" when we were kids, and every time we just say that "3eed" isn't the same as it was when were younger, that may be true but today i just thought about it, it can't end at a certain age, i think that we should at every stage of our life develop a way to enjoy it..

hope every one will have a blessed and joyful "3eed"
