Akata family, American family, who gives a damn!

Death is a debt we all owe. It doesnt matter if you are White, Black, Akata, Akata-Nigerian, Nigerian-American, death is no respecter of persons. Why open a thread for someone just because they are Americans when we have hundreds of no-name Nigerians yet to be accounted for. American family of 6, 10, 11, or 300 millions I dont give a shoit; doesnt make me care any less.

We share the pains they bore. May God console their families and the families of every other person (they all matter) that died in the crash. Amen, Alleluiah!

We should leave God out of all these stuff. Let follow our laws, let put competent people at the helm of affairs and prevent a re-occurrence where possible. A thousand condolences will not bring back the dead.

Stop using dividing words like akata because this was a black family whose lives where lost. Just because they lived in america means that people should not feel sad? It is silly to only want to care about nigerians. Even if they were white I would still feel sad for their families. Have a heart. Look at the black skin and not nationalities.

bayooooooo: We should leave God out of all these stuff. Let follow our laws, let put competent people at the helm of affairs and prevent a re-occurrence where possible. A thousand condolences will not bring back the dead.

God is in everything no matter how much people try to remove him.
