Libya: welcome, Maya Mohamed Nabbous (newborn daughter of slain internet journalist)

An update to the tragic story of Mohammed "Mo" Al Nabbous, founder of the Benghazi webcast "Libya Alhurra TV," killed in a firefight this March at age 28: his baby daughter was born this week. Mo's widow writes,

This is dedicated to the Loving Father who never got to see his First and Only baby. He would have been the proudest Dad on the world. After the baby was born and the first time I held her in my arms, she had the biggest smile on her face. I was amazed and so sure that her daddy was with us at that moment. He will remain with us and in our hearts forever.

  1. *sigh*

    Amazing how beautiful innocence can come out of such a crappy world as the one we’ve got now. Best wishes little baby. May your world be better than ours.

    crossing fingers.

  2. why do we keep forgetting what babies teach us – love is all?

    Tragedy, heart break, and still the bitter sweet hope for a better future.

    I hope she and her mother live good lives with many, many happy times.
