Remember — By Beulah McKee
Do many of you remember Pan Am 103? The plane bombed from the sky over Lockerbie? It happened December 21st, 1988 with all those aboard unaware of their fate.
As the ‘Maid of the Sea’ pushed back from the gate, it was behind schedule, the take-off was late but Terrorists had determined this to be a doomed flight. All those aboard would die that night.
As the plane took to the sky, headed out to sea, it had to pass over Lockerbie. Already flying at 31,000 feet and so, the explosion was unheard of those down below.
As parts of the plane fell to the ground, they came to land on a once quiet town. My son was one of the passengers that had been inside, whose bodies would come to rest on their countryside.
Though the oceans of tears those of us cried, over the years have mostly all dried. They have left us with memories that will ever remain, to come to mind again and again.
So–do many of you remember Pan Am 103? The plane that was bombed from the sky over Lockerbie? It happened long ago on December 21st, 1988 and yet, it’s a date that no one must ever forget.
We cannot, we must not ever forget.
