"... And to all Malaysians, welcome home."

Today is national mourning day for the victims of the ill-fated MH17. Their remains have been brought back to Malaysia. The country is united in grief.

A friend of mine, Shuba, was on the plane, with her husband and her young daughter. Back in May, when we ended our last conversation on Facebook, we spoke about meeting up for coffee after her return from her Europe trip (and I from Tokyo).

I am now sitting at Starbucks, writing this while having coffee. Perhaps in a different better place, she too is having coffee.

My thoughts are with the friends and family of everyone on MH17. And MH370 as well.
