FLIGHT MH370 carries a 22/4 Destiny
“The search for MH370 debris will be a race against time today, as ships and planes try to locate 122 objects spotted by satellite before the weather deteriorates”(news.com.au).
What’s happened in the weeks after the disappearance of MH370 is evident in the 22/4. A number which is more about achieving the unachievable that anything else. The 22/4 was also active in the Beaconsfield mine disaster of 2006. There, we are happy to say, the unachievable was achieved and the miners were rescued after 14 days underground.
Sadly, this catastrophic event has played out far differently. We can only hope that whatever is salvaged, if anything, will at least bring a degree of finality for the families of those on board this tragic flight. When I say finality, I mean a degree of closure regarding its circumstances, not for the lives lost. For once you lose someone you love, your life is forever changed. In addition, when loss happens tragically, as in this case, there is additional trauma and questions which will continue to haunt those left behind.
I’m sure you are with me when I say our prayers and thoughts are with those coming to terms with the loss of loved ones on board flight MH370. And may those who died rest in peace and light.
