I sent you an email after I heard the news, just to get an Out of the Office reply promising you'd be back.
I used google to place myself on Powhike Parkway just before Reams Road to see it clear of all harm.
I wanted to believe all this was just a nightmare and that on Monday morning we'd all wake up from it.
The taste of reality was so bitter Imad. May God find you a place right next to him my friend.
