It's not death, no, that stabs
but your willingness to go
nor do I know how high You are
now, supreme over dust, over sorrow
(Chairil Anwar: Gravestone, October 1942)
Translated by Burton Raffel
We share in this deep grief. The sorrow we endure can never be as deeply borne by those among kin. We may never know them, or be acquainted in any way; but we feel the pain. Kin, colleagues and friends who await their return have lost, loved ones near and so very dear. This loss is as much ours, as it is theirs. Those who succumbed – are not just a roll-call of names, mere ream of statistics or just a row of numbers. They reside deep in our memory; especially by Astro AWANI. Join us in expressing condolences to the passengers and crew of MH17.
