Here’s the deal. There have unfortunately been a lot of plane crashes in our history, but MH17 is hitting me hard. Maybe it’s because I recently traveled to Asia and know people going to Malaysia soon. Or maybe I can’t freaking believe somebody shot a passenger plane down. Either way, instead of writing a post for today I’m going to go spend time with my family. I hope you do the same—call someone you love, check in with family, hug your dog.
If you want to read about it, Lucky over at One Mile at a Time wrote a piece that gave me chills. Chris at Travel Skills works through the way the news unfolded. Charlie at Running for Miles tries to find the words. And the always helpful Seth has some good info about No Fly Zones over at Wandering Aramean.
I hope we all know what happened soon. And I pray for the families and loved ones of the victims that were on the plane.
