The most poignant journey home

We remember and we care - Malaysia Airlines MH17. May you rest in Peace.

Whenever a Malaysia Airlines flight from overseas lands at KLIA, there will always be that welcoming and reassuring on-board announcement – “…and to all Malaysians, ‘Welcome home’”.  For many citizens, that simple but familiar greeting never fails to warm our hearts.

Tomorrow morning, we as a nation stand at attention to receive the remains of 20 fellow Malaysians home on a special flight from Amsterdam.  They were among those who perished with the brutal downing of MH17 over the Ukraine last month.  For their families and loved ones, this would be their most poignant journey ever.

Let us stand united in prayer for all victims and their loved ones.  May they be at Peace.
