From time to time, I notice the sound of the Alaska or Delta jetliners that fly overhead on their departure or arrival at our airport. But since Thursday, every time a plane flies overhead I can’t help thinking about the passengers on that Malaysian Airlines flight that was shot down over eastern Ukraine days ago.
This last Thursday morning, I had just checked the breaking news on my computer. A few moments later, I checked again and there was the terrible news. In the space of just a few moments, almost three hundred people had lost their lives.
