13 yr old boxer, Anucha Thasako has passed away following a blow to the head in a charity boxing match. Anucha was knocked out cold in round 3 by his opponent as both teenagers were not wearing headguards. Anucha has competed in a 170 bouts, he was fighting from a young age to help pay for his education as both his parents died when he was young. Sad state of affairs in Thailand, a young child having to fight to earn a living. Rest in peace little man😪 .
I was very saddened after reading this story, thinking to myself 'why does this child have to suffer so much and then end up losing his life at a very young age'? To most of us, this would be considered unfair and extremely disgusting. It's normal to have such reactions to news like this. However, let's look at this tragedy from another perspective. .
Yes, Anucha is no longer in this world. However, his spirit continues to live. In fact, he's probably now reunited with his parents in heaven, and in a much happier state than he has even been while he was alive. Think about how much he had to struggle and manage without his parents. Think about how even though other children get to enjoy their childhood and have fun, this kid had to fight to support himself. Think about how worn out he must have been, both physically and mentally. Ideally, it would have been very inspiring to see him still alive, overcome adversity and make a huge impact on society as an adult. However, considering everything that he's gone through, let's praise God that he's now in heaven as a happy kid with his parents once again, and no longer has to suffer in this cruel environment.
Why am I sharing with you all this? You see, when you go through a failure, setback, disappointment, or even an unfortunate loss such as this, there are two ways to approach it. You can be like most people in society and see it as a hopeless situation. Or you can develop a peace of mind and start seeing it as a blessing in disguise. Unfortunately, there will be very painful circumstances that will occur and out of our control. However, we can control how we respond to such circumstances. How we choose to view our circumstances is up to us. #boxing
