Flight MH730

In regards to the missing Malaysian plane, I was shocked and disgusted to discover that the relatives of those who perished into the Indian Ocean are reported to have been delivered the devastating news by a regular SMS text message. I mean … what?

That’s just disgusting.

That the news of having your loved ones to be – first of all – missing and then to have regrettably died through a simple text message is cruel, apathetic and cold. This is what I have heard from the news. People were screaming. It’s so distressing, and so sad.

Sometimes, I really hate the world we’ve grown into, that we have to resort to technology for absolutely everything. Even delivering news to the bereaved.

Maybe I’m missing something, but I just don’t get that.
