|Debris of MH17|
Footnote: The saddest thing is we are no longer able to feel a deep sense of shock and sympathy because we have been bombarded with so many bad news and tragedies in recent years. Just over four month ago, on March 8, MH370 with 239 souls on board. It is yet to be found. Now MH17 with 295 people on board.
It is hard not to ask, what is happening to us? Why are we experiencing so many bad things and tragedies in rapid succession?
I am afraid many of us are becoming numb and are unable to show emotions anymore. Still our hearts and prayers go to families and loved ones of the passengers and crew of MH17.
For those of us who are Muslims, we may want to ask, is this another “bala” (trial) or could this be the “pembalasan” (punishment)? I am sorry for raising this at this juncture. Wallahuaklam.
