I've been wanting to pen down my thoughts since the very first day, but couldn't find the right words. Today, as we possibly move towards closure with the recent findings by the Australian maritime, I just want to steal this few moments. Possibly the last few moments of hope I'm allowed to have.
From Day 1, I have had such high hopes that they are all somewhere, out there, and they're coming back. I know the niece of one of the cabin crew, and that is close enough to feel the pain. I cannot possibly imagine how each and every family member feels or has been feeling from the minute they did not see their loved ones walking out the departure gate, or getting the "I've arrived" text.
To the families of the passengers and crew of MH370, the flame of hope still burns bright for you, but in any case, you deserve closure of some sort. Whether it is a happy ending or otherwise, I wish you the strength to move on and the love to heal the pain.
MH370, regardless of how this is going to end, you have taught us all SO MUCH.
The world has united in ways we have not seen in a long, long time. So many countries across the globe unite for a sole purpose. Communicating, supporting, consoling and pouring out their efforts in the search and rescue mission.
It is sad but tragedies like this will also serve as a reminder for each of us to never take our loved ones for granted. Life is so fragile and every moment should be treasured.
MH370, allow me to say probably for one of the last times, "Please come back."
