With the recent airline disasters, I guess some of us are quite fearful to step on a plane. Our itchy feet probably just want to stay at home, relax and be safe. You tend to ponder on how safe it really is to travel. Be it by air or ship.
I feel so sorry for those innocent people who perished in this year’s airplane or ship disasters. May they all rest in peace. Nowadays it is quite safe to ride an airplane and it’s just so sad to hear air disasters when you turn on the television. Hearing bizarre events and especially where there’s no closure like airlines disappearing or senseless killing of innocent people is really depressing. Sometimes, I’d rather not watch the news. What I don’t know won’t hurt me.
But because we live in the crazy world of social media, one can’t help but be informed through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and etc. Sometimes you wish life is simpler. With no internet. Where people actually make an effort to connect and have some good ol’ conversation face to face instead of through Facetime, Skype or Viber. But then, technology does have it’s advantage and I’m sure you already know! 🙂
Anyway, I hope that this series of unfortunate events won’t deter those who love to explore. Traveling is still awesome, after all. What we need to do is probably to pray really hard for a safe trip be it air, sea or land. And Pray for World Peace!
