Heartfelt Wishes for the Families of MH370
One of the first posts I wrote for this blog (Flight MA 370: Hidden in Plain Sight?) was about a Malaysia Airlines plane which just mysteriously disappeared last spring. On March 8th, MA 370 (MH370) and all 12 crew members and 227 passengers aboard just vanished. That was nine months ago. We still have no idea of what happen to the plane or the passengers. There are all sorts of theories about how and why the plane crashed ... or if it even did. The investigation continues, but there are still no answers.
My heart goes out to the families and friends of the people who disappeared with that plane. I cannot imagine what it is like for them - to have no answers. No closure. Still unsure of whether or what exactly to mourn. I did not know anyone on the plane, yet I find this mystery unsettling.
Important occasions like major holidays can very hard in times of grief. At a time when everyone else is celebrating, feelings of loss can be overwhelming. Holiday traditions, usually enjoyed with family members, become just an additional reminder of what is lost. Birthdays, anniversaries, special events, and holidays that have occurred since the plane disappeared have no doubt been painful for the people whose loved ones were on that flight.
I hope that the people with personal connections to the passengers of flight MA 370 know that the world has not forgotten them. That we still wonder what happened. That, until proven otherwise, we hold on to a little glimmer of hope that, even with diminished possibilities over time, they somehow will be found.
I hope they know that we have not forgotten, that we still want to have hope, and that our hearts also desire the answers that they seek. I wish them peace.
