What a sad day yesterday was in more ways than one. I am having a hard time trying to word this post.
We were at the Warsaw airport doing this…
“L” is going to be doing her university studies in the US so yesterday she flew back a few early to start getting herself situated there before school starts. So we drove down to Warsaw since that is the major airport for international flights.
She flew through Amsterdam as part of her itinerary. This is where the story makes a sad turn, almost at the exact same time as “L’s” plane is taking off in Amsterdam…the Malaysian flight was shot down(this is my personal opinion of what happened to bring down the plane).
So for the next couple of hours while watching CNN and the news about the plane crash, this was my computer screen.
I knew she was safe but until I saw that the plane had landed in the Minneapolis airport I was just a wee bit nervous, so it was a long 5 hours for me.
I know that today I will be able to pick up my phone and call her and hear her voice again(I am sure asking for money already) but tragically 298 other people will not have their voices heard again. Oh how my heart aches for those families affected with the plane tragedy.
When is the first time you flew? It is hard to believe but “L’s” first time flying was when she was about 10 months old and my first time flying was when I was 15 going to a Girl Scout camp.
