Many Malaysians have vowed to wear black to show solidarity on the national day of mourning this Friday when the first batch of the remains of MH17 victims is brought back to the country.
Business owner Deepa Senghera, 33, said she mourned the loss of the 298 passengers on MH17 every day although she did not personally know anyone on that flight.
“I will not mourn their loss only on Friday but every day because they were human beings on their way to a new beginning and with renewed hopes of tomorrow.
“They were people looking forward to spending time with their families.
“They were real people with dreams,” she said, adding that she would be wearing black on Friday.
