Is It Safe To Fly?
Last year had been a really bad year for the folks in Malaysia where flying is concerned. We have been having a really good track record and the airlines had won many international awards. Suddenly everything came crashing down last year. First it was MH370. The plane just disappeared mid air. Until today, one year later, the plane is yet to be found. We have nations all over the world looking for this plane with Australia being in the fore front and yet, nothing. The families and loved ones are waiting for answers and closure and yet there seem to be no answers.
Then there was MH17. The plane was shot down while flying over Ukraine. All passengers were killed.Nobody is taking the blame. There was fighting there and the plane was shot by mistake. Is this an answer you would accept?
Of late it was an Air Asia flight. Flying from Indonesia to Singapore, caught in a storm and crashed into the sea. All passengers died. It was so sad watching the media showing the way the wreckage in the sea. It took the rescuers a few weeks to get the parts of the plane out of the sea.
i think Malaysians in general heaved a sigh of relieve when the year came to an end. Worse, still 2014 was visit Malaysia year. What irony! all the plans and programs that were put into place did not get the response we wanted. Malaysians were not in the mood to celebrate and the tourists were keeping away too.
2015 will be a better year. Of this I am sure. After all life is like a tide, sometimes it is high and at other times it is low. we just need to learn to ride it out and all will be well.
