After 17 days of mystery, hope and theorems; DS Najib announced to the world the current conclusion on the fate of MH370. With the current data and information, he broke the bad news to the world.
It has been the most emotional roller coaster for the past 2.5 weeks. Speculations and speculations became the talking point amongst Malaysians if not the world. Everybody was intrigued with the mysterious dissapearance because it can sound illogical for the big steel bird to disappear without a trace. It was a new experience for us as Malaysians and definitely the power in being to handle such an emotional tragedy.
Somehow the PM's announcement would bring some sort of closure or should i say, the beginning of the coping mechanism process. The agony of hoping for the best outcome is unbearable and having to wait for morethan 2 weeks to have some sort of concrete idea what had happened. I don't blame the Beijing families to throw tantrums and run amok with the limited information which was provided. It is very volatile and a bit of provocation does make things worse.
It is of no surprise for the foreign media to not acknowledge our efforts to handle this issue. It is so easy to fall into the trap of scrutinizing and being ashamed of your own kind to the world. Social media can be a bad thing as everybody is entitled to their opinion and to be made known all over world! C'mon guys.. a bit of jatidiri is the key here. We have to accept who we are and rather than bring them down to find ways or show how it is done to our next generation.
This is just the beginning as I am sure there are a lot of questions that need answers. MH370.
