I have been numbed and trying to come to terms with the recent tragedy that took place in the my island home...Zanzibar.
Just a few months ago last year we were gripped with grief when MV Spice Islander sank and more than 300 people died....the island was in deep mourning, the world was saddened, shocked and all countries, all leaders gave their condolences...and now another boat sinks...from the same company with almost 200 people dead....I don't think its God's fault any more....lets not put this on him....
Such images remind you that life is indeed sweet as survivors try to hold on to any means of life that floats....and lets remember when night hits, rescue operations come to a halt until morning...what hope is there for those stuck in watery graves...buried alive...
Inna lilllahi wainna ilayhi rajiun. May Allah bless all those souls that left too early in their watery graves, those accounted and unaccounted for, all the families torn apart, ya Allah please give them courage.
