It’s been weeks since the fatal Ethiopian crash claimed the lives of 149 people among them Anthony Ngare, who was an employee with Standard Group.

According to him such gestures gave him the zeal to move on.

I was handed this letter by my eight year old daughter this morning. I read it and I almost let out a tear. This is the kind of stuff that keeps me going.
