Tragic Germanwings flight 4U9525 on 24 March 2015. 150 victims. I was one of the last to see passengers of this flight alive.
Together with them I passed the security checkpoint at Barcelona Airport Terminal 2, Spain. One woman smiled at me, and I smiled back. I also got angry with one sluggish man. I think I even accidentally pushed his luggage on the conveyor belt. Like always, we were all in a hurry.
And still, we carry on hurrying now. We forget to sincerely hug our beloved ones for goodbye.
We don’t know yet, that every hug can be the last.
I got the idea to take this symbolic photo few months later when I traveled again from the same terminal and saw this touching advertisement.
