Dear Baba,

Dear Baba,

It’s been a while. I haven’t spoken to you or seen you in over a month. I have a lot to say and a lot I want to tell you, but mostly I just want to see you safe and sound. I feel strange even writing this down, because all I can think about right now is how you’re doing. I feel powerless in this moment, because I cannot hear your voice. Then I imagine what you’d say, and I feel better. I know you’d tell us to push on and keep our heads held high. I know you’d tell us to ignore the haters and focus on what’s right. I know you’re going to be free soon Baba, and we’re going to see you again. I don’t think I have much left to say, Baba. I don’t want to say anything. I just want to see you again. And we all will, I know it.

From your favorite son,

Sharif Ebrahim Al Sayed
