1. Hari Berkabung (National Mourning Day for MH17’s Victims) - 22nd August 2014

    My Merdeka Wish

    By Ruzaimi Ramli

    Let’s take a step back, and let us reflect on what happened to Malaysia in the last few months. We had been tested with two tragedies that, I hate to admit this, unite us.

    We acted, we talked, we wept, we cried, we stood strong as a unit. As Malaysians.

    As a nation we should be united all the time, not only when we are hit by tragedies.

    That is my wish for this years’s Merdeka. A wish that most of us would share without any hesitations, like how we shared our sadness yesterday.

    I pray that one day, all of us will share success and happiness together too.

    Co-Pilot of the ill-fated Flight MH17, Ahmad Hakimi’s son, being carried by his co-worker/friend while being surrounded by Malaysia Airlines’ pilots. May you grow up to be reminded of how great of a man your father was - he was a Malaysia Airlines’ pilot, a hero. Photos taken by Rakyat Post.

    “He always reminded me that we do not have to be an ulama or ustazah, but in whatever we do, we should dedicate ourselves to God.”
    - Ahmad Hakimi’s wife, Asmaa Aljuned (known as Kimi to friends & family)

    Ahmad Hakimi was the Co-Pilot of Flight MH17, he has an 8-month old son called Abderrahman. More on him, click here.

    “He would make up for the time he was away. When Kimi (Ahmad Hakimi’s wife) was at home, he would always hold on to Abderrahman (his son). He wouldn’t put Abderrahman in a high chair or a stroller but carried him all the time.”

    Muhriz Marzaidi is the 10 year old son of one of the air stewardesses in the ill-fated Flight MH17, Mastura Mustafa. I have no doubt that you will grow up to be a man your mother will be proud of. Sending plenty of warm hugs and love to your family and the rest affected by this tragedy. More on him, click here.

     

  8. Anonymous said: I pray for your country during this difficult time. I cannot begin to imagine the pain your citizens must feel, esp. those working for Malaysian Airlines, not only for losing friends, family and colleagues, but also to have the blame put on you. It is not fair. But I have every faith that you and your country will make it out of this tragedy stronger than ever.

    Thank you ☺️
