Together in Grief


At an interfaith prayer session held last Friday at the Malaysia Airlines Academy in Kelana Jaya, Malaysia Airlines staff paid tribute to colleagues who had perished.
MH17 & MH370: The twin tragedies that claimed the lives of twenty-seven Malaysia Airlines crew.
I understand their feelings. Anguish. Distress. Pain.
I know their feelings. Sorrow. Sadness. Suffering.
I feel what they feel. Weep woefully. Cry copiously. Together, we mourn.

But, when there are no more tears to be shed, they must be strong.
When they don't think they can, hold on!
Courage isn't about having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don't have the strength.

Hi Victor,
The pain we feel here blends with the Malaysian peoples and we share the grief of these dreadful tragedies. Our prayers and thoughts are with all the families who have lost loved ones, and together we will reach out to comfort each other in the coming days, months and years.

Gone too soo, but never forgotten.
