It seems Malaysian Airlines cannot catch a break. Another of its planes went missing but this time the situation is different. Malaysian flight MH17 on a Boeing 777-200 was shot down by missilles on route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. THe flight left at 12:15pm and never made its 13 hour flight. THe pilots and passengers possibily died instantly and did not have any warning of the impending doom from the projectile heading towards them.
All 285 people, many of them children, were killed. The whole situation is heartbreaking and disturbing. Leaders and media pundits are pointing fingers at Russia and Ukrain rebels as being responsible for the shooting down of this flight. The black boxes are trying to be collected in order to figure out what really happened. Voices were overheard on radio frequencies alluding to possible knowledge of the attack by Ukraine rebels. Only time will tell who was really responble.
Let us pray for these people who died in this horrible attack, and let us pray for their loved ones who are going through a lot of suffering now.
