Millennial Challenges: A millennial Giant Diplomat of the Horn Passes Away!

Global Strategic Enterprises, Inc for Peace and Prosperity-

Dear Patriotic Ethiopians and Friends of Ethiopia and USA across the Globe:

It is with great sadness and shock that I learned the home calling of one of our unique patriot and hero of Ethiopia and the Horn! Professor Kinfe Abrham

I knew Dr Abraham when he was working on his interesting articles and coming to some of the zillion conferences we used to organize in Europe during the dark days of the Military Dictatorship.

He used to write interesting articles and was indeed an intellectual Giant of his time. I remember so many wonderful times we had discussing the many interesting challenges of Africa and Ethiopia- the Horn in particular.

The last time he was here in Washington DC, it was ironic that we did a series of television and radio interviews and he looked a man with destiny giving every second and ounce of his energy to peace, security and prosperity.

I will write more in detail, but for now, I want to say what a great man of honor and dignity and huge intellect.

I know his beloved wife, who in her own right is intelligent and very supportive to the great work he did. Without exaggeration, he is part of the big dots in the connection of US-Ethiopia relations, as I know many of his great achievements./

May the Lord bless his family in Ethiopia and Scandinavia and most importantly his beloved wife and I know for sure many in the Ethiopian Diplomatic community will miss this diminutive person in statue but a Giant man in his accomplishments, that I refer to the Great Millennial Diplomat of Ethiopia and Afria.

with regards and saddened by his sudden departure.

May he leave a legacy amongst us that Ethiopia does still have Giant Scholars and Diplomats hidden in all of us!

What a unique time for his departure, there was so much he could do!

But We are alive and we will carry his torch.

I am so overpowered with emotion that my tears are running as I write this.

Dear Patriots let us make his life worthwhile by following in his foot steps!

Viva Dr Abraham, you are not dead, you live in all of us! We will honor your heritage!
