Last weekend I was on my way to visit my new bff. In the bus I was sitting next to a young woman who was happily reading her Bali & Lombok Loneley Planet travel guide. Obviously she was ready to go. Afraid to bother her by asking when she would be going and why she was going. I acted normal and said nothing sitting next to her casually looking at her smile of excitement.
Thursday July the 17th the flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur from Malaysia Airlines crashed, due to a civil missile conflict in east Ukraine. I think about her, seeing this travel guide in the newspapers and on tv as one of the items that were found near the plane crash and hope its not hers even though so many other peoples lives are now lost.
To all family, friends and people who are affected by this terrible tragedy I just want to tell you to be strong and love even harder because yesterday is gone today is almost over and tomorrow is not promised.
