By now, many of folks around the world have heard about or read the very sad and unfortunate news regarding Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. The circumstances surrounding this tragedy are equally devastating. As someone who regularly flies and finds the experience both necessary and amazing, I was shocked by this senseless crime against nearly 300 innocent travelers. People simply going on vacation, returning home to see family or about to embark on new work or life adventure. It is my hope that the perpetrators involved will be brought to justice and that this will become a wake up call for those in the region.

My condolences to those affected by this tragedy.
