Gebran Tueni


Yesterday on New TV, there was an episode of "Akid Akid Maestro" dedicated to the memory of Gebran Tueni. Nechan hosted Nayla and Siham Tueni, together with Gebran's lovely young girls.

I was so touched by that episode. Gebran had a huge influence on me ever since I started reading and listening to him (about 5 years ago). I've always admired his courage and his ability to speak his own mind in all cases. He lit the fire inside me, and provoked me to dream about a true Lebanon, where we can participate in building and making this country ours.



All freedom martyrs affected me deeply, but Gebran's assassination broke my heart. I saw Nayla on TV many times. You could feel Gebran's presence in her eyes, talk and even breath. It's true what they say :"Elli khallaf ma mat" "He who had kids never dies". Up till this moment, you can still see the burden this young lady has on her shoulders, and yet she's not quitting. On the contrary, she's more determined to carry on the Tueni's legacy.



I know that the possibility of you, Nayla, reading this post is almost zero, but I just want you to know that it's not only you who lost a father. We all lost a true father, and an inspiring leader, who lived his life pushing us to defend what we believe in, and to never stop dreaming about OUR LEBANON.

May you rest in peace dearest Gebran, we miss you so much, and you will always remain alive in our memory, hearts and lips as we keep reciting your oath......

I loved the show on NewTV, but Gebran's wife appeared to be a bimbo... I expected she would have more intellect... or maybe she comes across so shallow... God Bless your divine soul Gebran... We will follow in your footsteps...
