I was recently recounting this story to a mutual friend (Rachel) and in doing so I realized how much Homaira has had an influence on my life from one small interaction. With the internet I stumbled upon this space and wanted to share... I was an acquaintance of Homaira from high school. One day I had an empty soda can in my hand and was about to toss it in the trash. Homaira looked at me and said that I should recycle it instead. At the time, there was no recycling at the school so that meant taking in home in your backpack and recycling at home. I looked at her, and said, okay, fine I will. Homaira must have noticed my casual tone because she grabbed my hand and looked me in the eyes and said, "you need to follow through with recycling it though. If you will not, I will take the can home and recycle it myself." I was so startled by her conviction and passion (and I think I recall her friends nearby nodding, as if to say, or maybe actually saying, yup, that's Homaira, she's pretty serious about this). In college and after, I became not only a dedicated recycler but a self-professed environmentalist and have evolved to live a low-impact and environmentally conscious lifestyle. I am saddened Homaira had such a short time here in this world, and I am so sorry to her family for her passing. I am forever grateful to her for unabashedly showing conviction and commitment to do what is right even if it is out of the ordinary or takes a little extra effort. She was a special person.

Homie! Today is marked the 14th.years of your departure and still I am dealing with your harsh and painful absence. You did not let me to see the glory of your future with hope, because I loved you with an everlasting love as you were my treasured possession. I am sorry that I wasn't able to do more for you when I tried to save your life and couldn't take away all the pain you had suffered on this planet of earth. I owed you something I couldn't pay you but i am sure that you are and have been rewarded by Almighty God in there which you are now. As always, I love you and we will see soon. Your Dad

Homaira Jaan! You are probably looking down from heaven up above right now and sending out smiles with days of sunshine and shower of love on us. No matter where you are, you are always in our hearts; no matter how long you are gone, you are always in our mind. I know you are saying this from heaven up above to all of your loved ones and especially to your lovely dad! Don’t cry for me, I’m where I belong. I want you to be happy and try to stay strong. Love!!

My dear Homie! Still ! I am waiting so badly to meet you and I know it and fully aware that I have to wait till my time comes. Still, I am living with the same amount of heartfelt grief when you departed. You were young, exotic and you died young. Your grief is still fresh for me and the only reason giving me hope that I lived long and I am waiting for the moment to strike. I don’t think words describe adequately, but I am trying to convince myself and I have no choice except to obey the will of His Supreme Majesty the God .... Love you and will meet soon...

Homaira Jaan is gone but never forgotten! Many years ago on this day, God decided to send an angel to earth. The angel was meant to touch lives and that happened! We have missed your cheerful heart and your happy smile 

We have no choice but to accept that this is the nature of creation. With all our pain & agonies, some how and one way or another we have to deal with it till the time comes and take us to join our loved ones. Love you Homie

Meine gesegnete Hoomie jan, es fällt mir bis zum heutigen Tage schwer, deinen Tod zu akzeptieren, obwohl ich sehr wohl weiß, dass Allah swt. dir einen ruhigen Schlaf gewährt. Ich bin mir auch unendlich sicher, dass wir uns an einem gewissen Tag treffen werden und es vor Freude nicht fassen können. Wie barmherzig Allah doch ist. Auch bin ich mir sicher dass, du ins Paradies kommen wirst und dort für ewig weilen wirst. Dein Onkel Fahim
