MH370 And Now MH17

I was driving to work this morning around 7.35am when I switched on the radio and heard the heart wrenching news .... the newscaster was already reporting half way and initially I thought that the MH370 has been found because I heard our PM was saying that justice must be upon those responsible.. but to my horror, I heard MH17... and not MH370...  Another plane missing or crashed?  Oh No.....!

Once I reached the office, I logged into Facebook... true enough, so many have posted up the  airplane  tragedy.... How shocking!  From 8th March till today, it is only four months plus and so many lives have perished again.... really sad....

Someone sent me this...
"Boeing 777 first flight was on 17/7/1997... yesterday it was the 17 anniversary....."

Imagine the sadness we feel for those we do not know... how much more pain when the families of the victims feel?  People, the least we can do for these families is to pray... Pray for comfort and peace upon their lives...

May God Bless Their Souls...

  1. This is not the first and it will not be the last, not unless men learn to leave in peace...which is most likely, never. Such atrocities will continue without ceasing. Nonetheless, let us continue to pray for God is all seeing, all knowing. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

  3. Same, I was driving to work when I heard the radio. To make matters worse, when I logged into FB, I saw many people sharing and spreading fake news and fake information, like we never learnt anything from MH370. The feeling really sucks. All we can do is pray for them.

  7. All got the number 7, last time my friend studied numerology they say too many same numbers will have tragedy so contrary to popular belief try not to have too many same numbers for your wedding etc, eg. 11.11.11 or 12.12.12, 宁可信其有,不可信其无 (just sharing)

  19. I feel very sad as I type this. 2 students from my wife's university had perished in this crash disaster while the chief stewardess lived in my neighbourhood.

  20. I was discussing with my wife that night about the airfares to London. I told her that it was cheaper to fly from KL to Paris or Amsterdam and hop onto trains to London. Within minutes, hell broke loose and TV news reported the crash. I was numbed and had sleepless nights. I dare not even think of London right now.
