Remembering MH370

I had another post lined up today, but this morning, I heard of the news... It felt wrong for me to write something else when I heard of this unfortunate news.

Here is the text from the press conference by our PM:

This evening I was briefed by representatives from the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB). They informed me that Inmarsat, the UK company that provided the satellite data which indicated the northern and southern corridors, has been performing further calculations on the data. Using a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort, they have been able to shed more light on MH370’s flight path.
Based on their new analysis, Inmarsat and the AAIB have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth. 
This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean. 
We will be holding a press conference tomorrow with further details. In the meantime, we wanted to inform you of this new development at the earliest opportunity. We share this information out of a commitment to openness and respect for the families, two principles which have guided this investigation. 
Malaysia Airlines have already spoken to the families of the passengers and crew to inform them of this development. For them, the past few weeks have been heartbreaking; I know this news must be harder still. I urge the media to respect their privacy, and to allow them the space they need at this difficult time. 

My heartfelt condolence to the families and friends. I don't know if I know anyone from the plane, I don't know if I know anyone among their families and friends, I don't know if I have crossed path with them, but my prayers are with them. I hope that, the teams that is out looking for the plane will find it soon, and let them return to their families at long last. I hope that a miracle will show itself and all of them return safely.

It is just too heartbreaking otherwise.

We remember you... and we will always pray for you #prayformh370
