A Street Accident/A Road Accident

Nowadays, the street accident has increased in an alarming rate in our country. Last week, a terrible street accident happened just before my eyes. I was going to school at about 9 a.m. I, with some of the school boys, was crossing Dhaka-Narayangonj road. All were crossing walking but a boy of about 10 lagged behind us and he tried to catch us running fast. He did not follow that a speedy bus was coming from the left. The bus driver could not decide how to save the boy. He braked hard but the bus skidded on the side of the road hitting a rickshaw carrying two passengers. The boy had a narrow escape but the rickshaw-passengers splashed about on the road. To our horror, we saw that they were seriously injured and the road flooded with their blood. The people around rushed to the spot. Some people took them to a nearby clinic by a van. There, the doctor declared them dead. That day I could not go to school. That tragic scene affected me so terribly that I could not eat anything two days. Probably the horrible memory will be chasing me for a long time.

Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.

― Aristotle
