The Ethiopian Airliner

If you’re the praying sort, do so for the families of those lost when an Ethiopian airliner that went down in the Meditteranean overnight.

The Boeing 737 bound for Addis Ababa in Ethiopia fell into the Mediterranean in a ball of fire with 90 people on board. At least 14 bodies have been recovered, and there has been no news of anyone surviving the crash.

Tragedies are tragic whether the victims are few in number or many.  We have a tendency to focus on the big tragedies without paying much attention to the small.

    Yes, and you can just imagine the massive coverage if this was a US or British airline…
