This is real now. While I knew he was leaving yesterday, it never occurred to me that he’d be flying over Syrian and Iraqi airspace… I guess I’m glad it didn’t occur to me until I woke up and looked at FlightAware this morning. He’s set to arrive at 8:25 am my time… 7:25 pm his time, so only about 2-1/2 hours to go. I just said a prayer, not that I’m super worried, I know that Heavenly Father is watching over him and the other passengers and crew; but I can’t help but think about MH 17 being shot out the sky. I don’t want to think about it but it crosses my mind.
