The death of this child of hope & dreams is a tragedy, as are all the deaths of children in this horrific situation in which both sides are spiraling down, no matter what the initial intentions. I am amazed & humbled by the courageous response of her father. I do not know if I, in his position, could have such wisdom or balance. I send him & his family my deepest condolences. May Abir's memory be a blessing & inspiration for all who crave peace. That is the only way to honor her life and all the lives that have been lost.
