And the pit in my stomach began to grow. No, I don't know anyone on that flight but I know what kinds of people were in that flight and I know it will affect me and I am heartbroken because it is awful, because it feels personal, it could have been me and my kids, it could have been anyone who flies internationally.
My kids start school in a week. They are going to an international school and there will be people in that school who knew people on that plane. That's the way expat life works. It is a very small village. I feel sick, it isn't fair.
To help myself get lost from my sad thoughts I made a slideshow of our happy year in the USA. I am not a huge Miley Cyrus fan but the song fit and if the song fits it fits.
