Dear friends,
I have been reading with gratitude, the messages of good will posted on our son Temesgen’s commemorative posting. I have also been receiving phone calls and touching messages through other channels. This is, of course, not a revisit or a rekindling of the sorrows of having lost a brilliant child of great promise. It is, rather, a celebration of the joy of having had him and the inspiration that he has now become to his mother Abrehet and myself. Life and death come together. Adversity and life are inseparable. The secret is how to turn death of a loved one into inspiration and adversity into advantage. Our healing process would not have moved an inch had we not been lucky with the kind of genuine empathy and support that we received from our respective families, friends and the population at large. It is this aspect
of our societal values that this posting by my nephew, Russom Weldezghi also seeks to laud. I thank my neice Beylul Solomon and my friend Mahmud Saleh for helping in the dissemination of the tribute to family and friends. Thank you all.”
