I was told by family member about the second Malaysian Plane Crash news. The plane was last seen in the East Ukraine, area near the Russian border. It was believed that the plane was shot down by a missile. Deep investigation is currently urged by the Malaysian prime minister, Najib Razak.
Among the passengers, many were the Dutch (154), Australian (27), Malaysian (43 including crew), Indonesian (12) and Britons (9). There are other passengers whose identifies are not yet confirmed, yet I cannot imagine the overwhelming despair, hopelessness and anger for the loved ones of the passengers.
As a person reading the news, I feel saddened for the easy gone of lives, and how easy war can harm the innocent ones.
What saddens me the most is that once lives are forcefully taken away, there is no resolution for any families, and the pain and trauma can be more difficultly dealt and let go. I cannot imagine how it can be for the families to accept the news, at the current moment, and in the long time.
Deep condolences to the gone ones, and to their families. Also to the people in the Ukranian village who are forcefully involved in the horror, and the people who mistakenly shot down the plane, and have to accept the truth.
