"Sometimes we need motivation to wake up...
and other times just to breath...
This is when 'one day at a time'
takes on new meaning."
My friend Joseph sent me the follow message and photos to a tragic event. He wrote...
"The morning of 9th October 2013, will go down as one of my saddest days. 5Y-BWL, a C172 that was quite popular in my school, crashed and killed the two crew on board. The instructor was also my instructor and the student had just enrolled and was less than two months old into flying.
The cause of the accident is yet to be known. Investigations have begun.The accident happened at a place called Nairobi National Park which is at the heart of my countries capital city- Nairobi.
The media was quick to the scene and the story was making headlines in no time.
When something like this hits close to home there are so many questions, feelings, and concerns. I wanted to know how Joseph was impacted by this. How he felt. He had some interesting thoughts and questions for us all.
- If something like this happened at your flying school, would you continue to fly? And if so how do you find the courage to go on?
- As a flying school... how would you handle this crisis to prevent students from pulling out?
- Most importantly, as a parent... how do you react following a fatal air accident where your child has perished beneath the rubble. Would you file a lawsuit? How would you move forward?
I want to send my deepest regret and sorrow for the families and friends of all involved. We can't bring your loved ones back, but we might be able to learn from this accident so it never happens again.
Enjoy the Journey
