How #MH17 tragedy has changed lives

July 17th 2014 marks a black day in the history of aviation and particularly that of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) when their MH17 flight carrying 298 humans was shot down by terrorists in the Ukraine-Russia territorial war.

I was super sad when i heard the news confirmed over the late night news on that Friday, i was dumbfounded. It was a war of emotion for me as i didn't know what to say, where to start, who to blame, the list goes on. I recall arguing with Vj on the very fact that the plane shouldn't have even taken that route, why did the pilots still go? I was upset with the pilots at first thinking they made a mistake. Then, I was upset with the militants who shot down a civillian plane. How can they NOT possibly know that it's a civillian aircraft? Days following the incident, more and more facts were unveiled. As I listened and observed each piece of news, my emotions changed to that of acceptance. I resigned to the fact that this was part of GOD's grand plan.

The following months after this very incident, more and more disasters were taking place around the world, mainly in the middle east. The war declared by a muslim militant sect ISIS has ripened and there was inhumane disaster taking place in Gaza, Palestine.

The trails of incident has taught us many important lessons as to why we are put on earth. The way humans were butchered in the name of religious beliefs made us question all our moral education and values.

One important lesson these times are teaching me is family values and love. How short and uncertain life is and to never take anyone you hold dear for granted. The saying Live Like There is No Tomorrow can never hold more true than during this time.

I find myself close to tearing each time i read about the MH17 tragedy, the lives lost, the pain their families must be enduring and of course the many questions of life, the sweet and shortness of our breath always give me the goose bumps and the warm feelings of comfort, knowing how close and near families are to my heart.
