Flight 17

This Malaysian artist created a perfect, exquisitely simple tribute to Flight 17's passengers

In the wake of Thursday's tragic plane crash, people around the world have come together to mourn. Malaysian artist-architect Hong Yi, who creates lovely designs using typically everyday objects, turned to her art to create the touching tribute, below.

She used 298 white petals to illustrate tears for the passengers aboard Flight 17.

"Absolutely heartbroken, a dark stain in our history," she wrote. "Prayers and heart goes out to all family and loved ones involved." --Sarah Eberspacher
