This week’s Heartlanders are the investigators who are still searching for answers in the Malaysian Airlines MH370.
With all seriousness, events like this make a big splash in the news, the Masses follow the updates for a few weeks, and then it all slips into obscurity and we all keep going on vacation like we used to. Except, of course, for a few families and friends and colleagues and neighbors and landlords and old teachers and classmates who will always wonder what really happened and will never forget that day.
Persistence is sometimes frustrating and scary to those who prefer to let things go and move on. Hopefully, some day everyone will hear the answer.
