Sacre Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris), Paris, France :: HDR

It is always sad to hear news about another flight incident. It is very hard and concerning especially when many of us are keen travellers to begin with. Heartbreaking even just reading the news online ... can easily feel the pain the families involved are going through now. My prayers and thoughts sincerely go out to all of them.
