In less than 5 months, we are yet again deeply disturbed and saddened by the lost of another Boeing 777, which carried a total of 298 people on board. We barely came out from the last incident of the missing flight MH370 and now this. The 298 people are not just people who died in this tragic incident but they are 295 people who are somebody to the people and community around them.
We are beyond devastated by this incident. No matter what race, religion, colour or nationality these people are, people are people and innocent people are now dead. What is worse is the fact that the deaths are caused by fellow humans themselves. This is a result of ongoing conflicts between countries, governments and rebels when humans can go to prove oneself to be superior or right, even at the cost of the lives of many.
We cannot bear to imagine the pain and mental trauma faced by the immediate families as it is horrible enough for those of us who do not have any blood-ties with the people on the plane.
In this difficult time we invite public to pray and mourn for all these people. May their souls rest in peace and may the families have the strength to hold on and make it through these excruciating times.
It so happens that today is also the Nelson Mandela International Day, commemorating the great leader who united one of the most conflicted nation, South Africa. Nelson Mandela has shown us how leaders can reconcile and through forgiveness have peacefully sought to resolve hatred that has plagued nations for many years.
It is high time for humanity to reflect on what are we doing to ease the ongoing conflicts in the world which are causing more pain and suffering. We need to stop all inhumane actions and prevent possible worse circumstances, leading humanity forward to a harmoniously-better living.
Come join us at the Piazza, The Curve to offer our prayer and support to the families affected, as well as to pray for peace and reconciliation in our wounded world.
