My dad passed away on 2/22/2012. Cancer took him after a long fight. He was a pioneer in journalism and future thinking. He loved the pen and paper. He loved his family. His pride is seeing his children and grandchildren succeed in life. He always believed in being passionate about what you do, authentic and honest, and good to yourself and everyone around you. He was always loving and embracing positivism in life no matter what. He was the first to get a television in his neighborhood. The first to get an encyclopedia while making monthly payments for each book. The first to push technology in journalism in Lebanon. He always invited others to leverage the knowledge he acquired. Never selfish. Never. I miss my dad. I miss every moment he was with us, but I know that every drop of thought, vision, or act I do each day has my dad in it.
