My deepest condolences go out to the victims of Flight MH17. I am quite devastated at the plane that was shot down in the Ukraine. Mainly because it didn't have to happen and more people almost 300 people at once now are gone, they have faded away. People who had their whole life ahead of them, happily going to their destinations. Some were AIDS researchers going to their conferences and others going on vacation with their families. This is the second air disaster for Malaysia Airlines in only a couple months, I know how overwhelmed they must be, surely this couldn't happen twice, right? Not in such a short time. There is so much death in the world, Even though I sell lots of Memento Mori jewelry, it doesn't make it easier to deal with. I suppose I make Memento Mori jewelry as an attempt to deal with death. As you get older you realize that end is near and you never know when, like those people on the plane who never saw this coming. I think the constant unknowing around death is terrifying. You don't know when, you don't know how, you don't know what will happen afterwards, you just know that you have no choice. Its the only thing that all humans, animals, and things share. The reason tragic news stories like these captures our minds and our hearts is because of this main fact: It will happen to you,too.
