    I join to express [my] heart felt condolences for the families and friends of the [157] victims”. After that deep sorrow, I hope Ethiopian Airlines will keep its chin up, search deeply the cause of the horrendous disaster with appropriate International Organizations and keep on going true to its extraordinary history.
