God still in charge

Q: A cloud of volcanic ash grounds European airlines and the chief executives of KLM and British Airways join their crews on test flights to show that it is safe to fly. What do these actions say about the importance of symbolic involvement by top leaders in responding to crises?

The symbolic actions of the airline executives is good public relations. However, all leaders should draw the lesson from this volcano situation that when all is said and done, God is still in charge.
