No Roots

And then there were none

There is something deeply symbolic about wanting to cut yourself off from what you are in order to become what you want to be. We were mesmerised by the Bijani's story because they reflect our own dual nature.
    We admire them greatly because few of us have the courage to take the risks to rid ourselves of the familiar in order to grow.
    Of course we wanted them to live. But had they lived, we would have praised science. Because they died, we praise the human spirit. In this day and age, we need the latter more so they have given us much.
    Either way, few doubt they made the right decision. They chose to risk all to live life to the fullest. They died at the high point of their lives - full of hope. That's a good death if there ever was one.
