I offer this post to all the Lebanese and NON-Lebanese who died in the building collapse in Achrafieh. May they rest all in peace and let’s hope such incidents will never be repeated.

What saddened me today is that one of the Sudanese workers who died used to work in the same building as I did. I used to see him every morning bringing the garbage out. He was a very polite and calm individual. I wish I knew what his name was.

Here’s an incomplete list of the people who died:
– Anna Maria Abdelkarim, 15 years old, Lebanese.
– Jihad, Farhat & Charlie Naim (3 brothers) & their father Tanios Naim.
– Laith, the deaf and mute boy.

If anyone has a complete list of the victims, please do share it as I cannot find it anywhere.
