Asaf Ramon

God works in mysterious ways and although I’m not a Hasidic Jew I do believe in some higher power. Sometimes, that higher power is just too much to handle.

Captain Asaf Ramon, son of Colonel Ilan Ramon – Israel’s first Astronaut, died today as his F-16 crashed near Kiryat Arba. Asaf graduated from Pilots School with distinction 2.5 months ago and was at advanced training stages. Only 6 moths ago, in March 2009, during the last stages of Pilots School, Asaf made a successful emergency landing after his Training Plane’s engine stalled mid-air.

Asaf – I hope you’ll find joy and peace where ever you are, watching over us from high in the clouds, reunited with your father. RIP.
