Today, we received news that another Malaysia Airlines airplane had crashed with almost 300 people over Ukraine. Initially, it wasn’t clear from the news reports what the cause of the crash was, but it was later revealed that a missile had hit the plane, causing it to go down. When I saw this news, I immediately got chills all over my body. Every time I hear about a tragedy of any sort now, I immediately remember the pain and shock I felt when Ed went missing, and we ultimately found out that he was gone forever.
On my way to dinner tonight, I was on the phone with my mom when she told me that she heard on the radio about the crash. She immediately got worried and said that she doesn’t want Chris and me traveling for leisure at all anymore because of the last two plane crashes that have happened. My mother is so predictable.
