As the victims of the flight MH17 disaster slowly start to make their way home to grieving loved ones, reports have emerged of another victim claimed by the tragedy. This elderly man lost four of his loved ones in the crash, and the grief was too much for him to bear.
An Australian couple are hopeful – if only distantly- that their daughter may have survived the MH17 tragedy. Their theory is not completely impossible, but it is extremely unlikely and with 16 people still completely missing, their journey to search for their daughter may take them into a war zone.
As with most shooting, it is the thought and skill that goes into what happens before you press the button or pull the trigger that makes or breaks you. Shooting a missile like the one that brought down flight MH17 is no exception. Oops…?
In what the US have called an increasingly desperate counter-argument made by Russia as to why it was, in fact, not them who fired the missile that down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, several questions have been raised by Russia to which they want answers.
Social media is proving to be one of the few platforms to which bereaved families can turn for solidarity, following the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 last week. This seething father pours out his broken heart on Facebook.
With The Netherlands having the highest number of casualties following the MH17 horror of any country, many nationals have taken to social media to express their grief and take a stand.
As the names of victims of Flight MH17 are slowly (although still unofficially) emerging, the grief for South African Cameron Dalziel (43) has been revealed to be among those to fall victim to the tragedy. The helicopter pilot is grieved by a huge portion of the SA rescue community.
In the latest audio recording it seems that the pro-Russian rebels have found and hidden the black boxes from flight MH17. Are they protecting them from being manipulated or are they manipulating evidence themselves?
No body wants to think of the people behind the facade of an angry soldier. We don’t want to accept their humanity or their pain – not when they are Russian rebels, right? But their pain is real, their fear for their loved ones is real, and their anger is very real. Who is really to blame for the tragedy?
Sometimes an inexplicable force intervenes in our lives on our behalf, or, if you prefer to be less mystical, we get extremely friggin lucky! This is what happened to this couple…
As with all big tragedies, people need time to absorb what has happened and get a little ways through the grieving process before it can become subject matter for comedians. Think this comment from Jason was “too soon”?
