At this hour of national grieving, all of us here would like to bow our head and our hearts in sorrow, as we lift our hands in prayer and share in the pain of all those who have been affected by the MH17 tragedy. Words cannot describe how much it pains our hearts to see the scores of lives lost; among them fellow Malaysian brothers and sisters, and so many more affected by this senseless tragedy.
All of us here would like to call upon all Malaysians to stand together as one nation, casting aside our differences as we mourn the needless loss of life. May the souls of the deceased rest in peace, and the family and friends of the departed persevere through their hour of need.
once again we would respectfully convey our heartfelt condolences to each and every one of the families affected by this tragedy. May their rest in peace. Amen
