a star has faded...

I am sad that Basil Fuleihan has left us so quickly and in such a terrible way. My concern and empathy goes out to his wife, his children and his family. Basil dedicated his life to serving the Lebanese public - something that too few of our politicians do. In his 42 years of life, he has accomplished more for Lebanon than multitudes of others who have lived to be a hundred.

may he rest in peace!

I don't think age is a criteria of merit.
it's caricatural to represent his 42 years this way; Basil was a great man.

didn't mean to sound caricaturial. didn't mean to downgrade basil's greatness either.

what i was trying to convey was that even in the relatively short time he was with us, he did so much.
