A Prayer for our beloved ones

Updated on January 29, 2010

Let us join hands in a little prayer to THE Almighty

Let us pray for our brothers that were lost

Let us say goodbye to souls hanging in the air

To those loved ones drowned in an unfinished fair

Let us kiss the Mediterranean goodbye as it turns to host

All their remains, bodies and shredded hopes

It's the questions it brings that causes unrest

Heaven knows families will get lost on this test

And so we can’t comprehend their pain

A mother a brother drowned in the sea and rain

A life’s hope fading a child’s first innocent love

A three year old still purer than a morning dove

No one knew it was their last day

Yet it struck various families with dismay

Death comes anytime without a warning

A beautiful life can end before even blinking

So let us shut the world for once and contemplate

About how a precious life was drowned in hate

How a full life was scared with doubt and boredom

As life fades to ashes let us find in it wisdom

Judgement day? How can we live regardless

When death descends guilt turns meaningless

An Ethiopian airliner carrying 90 people exploded in a ball of flames and plunged into the sea off Lebanon just after takeoff in stormy weather early Monday, officials and witnesses said.

A massive international search and rescue operation involving helicopters and ships was scrambled as President Michel Sleiman said there was no immediate suspicion foul play was involved and grim-faced officials played down hopes of any survivors.

A Lebanese security official said that by early afternoon at least 24 bodies had been pulled from the sea, including that of a child. One rescue official told AFP that some of the bodies recovered were dismembered while another said bodies were floating in the water.

The health ministry said it had set up a crisis unit in a bid to identify the victims trough DNA tests or items of jewellery found on their persons.

Debris from the Boeing 737, which was headed to the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, as well as luggage and personal belongings could be seen washing up on the shoreline south of the capital.

A defence ministry official said the plane exploded into four pieces before crashing shortly after takeoff at 2:30 am (0030 GMT) in a heavy thunderstorm.

Witness: It was like the whole sea lit up
