Images Of Beautiful Lost Ones From Dana Plane Crash

June 5th, 2012

The Kush Chronicle- I was at home yesterday, babysitting the kids when I got the call from Ben, a friend.

A plane had crashed into my parent’s neighborhood three bus stops away from our family home.

So saddening.

I give glory to God though because my baby brother was planning to come home from Abuja by Dana Air. He’s changed his mind now and decided to go by road.

Since all over the net the news is no longer news, I don’t need to talk about what happened. But I went round trying to find out who and who was on that ill fated plane. These pictures I came across drew tears to my eyes…such promising faces…lives cut short by the tragedy…generations wiped out in an instant…

May we never see such again. Here they are…
