My airline pilot friends reported to me last week that in the aftermath of the Germanwings tragedy, passengers stepping onto their jets were asking them “do you feel alright?”
But an unidentified woman said something else, according to a pilot in the United Kingdom who tweeted her note: “Thanks.”

In light of the very recent tragedy in the French Alps and the loss of those poor 150 people, I feel the need to reach out to you and extend a compassionate hand. At the end of the day, we are all humans just trying to live this rollercoaster of a life we have been handed.
I understand an event so horrific as this one affects those with your responsibility more than others, and maybe sometimes a kind word, random but heartfelt, can make a difference. I’m hoping to create a ripple effect and spread some compassion and understanding.
Thank you for taking me home. Thank you for doing so safely. Thank you for allowing me to live the life I do in Spain and split my time with my family in England too. You make the excitement I feel now to see my family possible. I hope you get to see your families soon. I’ve had a wonderful flight and hope you have too.
You’re making a massive difference and you’re the reason I can smile tonight.
Take care and spread love.
