You all by now know about the Malaysia Airlines (it is not MalaysiaN) Flight 17 (Boeing 777) was shot down over Russian-Ukrainian Border. Both sides are blaming each other. But the real tragedy is 298 innocent lives are lost, for no fault of their own.
May they rest in peace and may God grant their families and friends the strength to bear this irreparable loss.
One of the passengers on that plane, Cor Pan, posted a picture of that “ill fated” plane in Facebook, before boarding. He wrote:
"If it should disappear, this is what it looks like."
Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17 is seen at the G3 gate of Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, before it took off, heading to Kuala Lumpur.
He wanted to joke about another Malaysia Airlines flight that mysteriously disappeared over the
Indian Ocean in March.
The poor guy did not know a few hours later his flight too would disappear.
My heart goes out for this guy and his family and all the 298 innocent passengers.
