All the Sadness Around Us

There's so much depression going on around the world but it's not our right to determine which is worse off. What can be compared when the bottom line is that many innocent lives are lost out of green and power. One minute you're just playing on the beach or listening to the music in the plane, and then next're gone.

Despite the catastrophes that are happening around us, many are still spreading hate around like as though we don't need enough hate already. We can say that we're lucky we're not in a war zone country but who are we to say that we are lucky or even safe. Many also still choose to turn a blind eye over the things that are happening around them because they're not affected. Who would expect the Malaysians from our neighbouring country, to lose their lives travelling above a war zone area declared as 'safe' for travelling. When I first heard the news on facebook merely lesss than an hour after the disaster, I was in disbelief. I was thinking this must be a hoax. How can a land missile just shoot a plane carrying civilians in the sky just like that.

When I checked the television, it was breaking news but the news were so new that they were probably scrambling behind the scenes before they cover the media. 

What is even sadder when I read comments and there are still people who don't seem to understand the seriousness of what is going on around the world, choosing to be some kind of keyboard warriors. We need to start opening our eyes and imagining what if this happen to our loved ones. It's time for us to take stock of what we have and how thankful we are that we are not caught in those war zone countries where every day to live is a blessing. And how we're not on their plane. While anything can happen, it's not up to us to judge which event is more serious. Just think about  the innocent lives lost and dreams are broken, and how they are just like you and me but caught in an undesirable situation.
