When hope is cut short...


' Our dead are never dead to us until we have forgotten them' - George Elliot

The crash is still so unreal, its seems it was a bad dream and we will soon wake up and all will be well. The young mother who perished with her husband, four kids, mother, and cousins was my junior in secondary school, we were not friends but i knew her, one of the air hostesses is a friend of a friend, i am told she was to get married in July, my brother's good friend lost her husband of two years in this same crash. I as a person, lost no immediate family or friends on Sunday yet the tears keep coming,  ....I weep for those who lost loved ones, i weep for the lives that were cut short, hopes that have been dashed, generations that have been wiped out ..we should never forget them, they and all the people who have lost their lives due to other plane crashes, road accidents caused by bad roads, hospitals that are poorly maintained, (all deaths that could and should have been prevented)....we should never forget, because life is precious and it is a gift....

He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it. 
Isaiah 25: 28
