Amazing and beautiful cover of Fihira’s “Bahri” by Luwam Thomas.
I haven’t been able to stop listening to this song since Sunday. Deki Erey, please, if you can, hold candlelight vigils where you and the community can pay respects to those who passed. Also discuss ways to progress Eritrea while eliminating tragedies like Lampedusa. It is our responsibility as much as it is anyone else regardless of your standpoint and personal opinions. We all can agree on the value of our brothers and sisters lives. We can all agree that Eritrea shall always remain an independent state. That is all we need to have in common. Our martyrs fought too hard and sacrificed too much for this. Eritrea is nothing with our youth, don’t let this pass you by. It has everything to do with you, diaspora or not.
If you are in or around the Cincinnati area, please join us for a candlelight vigil in Eden Park at 6pm TONIGHT. We will be meeting where you overlook the Ohio river.
Rest in peace to our brothers and sisters. My prayers go out to the friends and family of those who have perished.
