Malaysia is in shock and is grieving. We are reeling from the blows that have pummeled us this year. The Prime Minister correctly reflected our thoughts when he said, “This is a tragic day, in what has already been a tragic year, for Malaysia.”
The news are filled with images of the wrecked plane and the details or speculation of what happened. There is no need for more of that in this blog.
Instead, I would just like to remember those whose lives were lost in this tragedy. My prayer is for the loved ones and families that they may find solace and comfort in their time of grief and for Malaysia, that as a nation we will weather this storm united in our grief and in our love and support to those in pain.
Here is the face of one of those 298, to remind us that these were all loved by parents, siblings, children and friends. Stewardess Angeline Premila, 30, was the youngest of the flight crew aboard the plane.
May God bless them all.
