We would like to express our deepest condolences to the families and friends of Sami Elkawafi and Tawfik Bensaud. May memories of happier times sustain you during your time of sadness.
Words are lost to describe our despair over the deaths of these two remarkable, brave and kind hearted men who cared and gave so much for others, but we found them written by someone who lost his son & friend too and we would like to share them with you.
People were killed. Eradicated.
Solely because of who they were.
Because they were not "we", but were "them".
The struggle for justice is not over.
The struggle for freedom begins every day.
In yourself. And in society.
Sami and Tawfik stood up and fought the inhumanity.
And had to pay for their courage with their lives.
We will remember them with the deepest respect.
These are dark days.
What good are ideals, what good is a better world tomorrow, if you lose your beloved ones today? These are the questions we ask ourselves.
We hope the memory of Sami and Tawfik will help us in times of 'I', to find 'us' again.
For not from the 'I' and 'them', but from the "we" the good things are created.
History has taught us that.
We will always remember you.
Rest in peace our true Libyan Heroes
