Yasser Slaihee is our late colleague who was killed by an American soldier on June 24, 2005. Yasser was hoping for a happy June and all of us did, back then.
In June 2005 there was supposed to be a sovereign government on June 30, Yasser’s birthday, but Yasser didn’t live long enough to see the date changed to June 28, they deprived Yasser from a wish that didn’t come true even after his death, off course I blame no one for it doesn’t matter, the ceremony and the announcement was everything but true on the ground.
Yasser, this blog is where I hope you will read how much you are remembered.
June refused to be a happy month for you Yasser, your daughter, your family and June is refusing to be a happy month for your friends.
Forgive me for not posting this yesterday, I didn’t forget your anniversary, I never did but June 24th is refusing to be an ordinary day to remember you, and yesterday didn’t pass peacefully, I have lost more my friend.
We will never forget you.
