RIP Charles Chikhani

Charles Chikhani

I don’t know anymore how many explosions happened in Lebanon, I lost count! but I do know that with every explosion many people loose their lives or if they are lucky only get wounded or loose a property.

One of the people who died in the Antoine Ghanem assassination is Charles Chikhani, I do not know him and just heard about him on LBCI. He is a young man who studied outside Lebanon but decided to return and work here so he became a Director in GlobalCom (a Lebanese communication company) before someone decided to remind every Lebanese that we cannot live in peace and killed him and 5 other people.

Picture from the facebook group dedicated to his memory.

  3. Eliedh,
    It is sad that so much hurt is done. There is no justification for terror. Good of you to mention some of the other victims. We have the tendency of concentrating on the major loss to the degree that we seem to forget that there are scores of other civilians and bystanders who also suffered. I don’t know Charles, but I know many who came back to work in Lebanon and lost their lives or livelihood because of the surreal situation here. As hard as it may be, I wish that his family find peace.

  4. It could have been any of us.
    Charles made the only mistake of being there… At the wrong time and place.
    Our thoughts and prayers go to his devastated parents and family.
    Lives so young, so beautiful, so great should be celebrated and not slaughtered.
    May God cast his just punishment on the killers.
    Charles, rest in peace.

  5. I don’t know Charles but I was very touched by the report made by LBC. Charles paid the bill of loving this country…

  6. Charles worked for two months in the same company I work for. Even though I briefly met him, I know he was a decent nice guy. He immediately felt like a member of the company and even though he left after two months he kept in contact with us.
    I am so sorry that he had to die this way. My thoughts are with his family. I wish them strength in this terrible ordeal. I cannot imagine the pain they must be going through…

  7. I was at the funerals of Charles and realized that he has touched so many hearts, we all love him, may he rest in peace now.

  8. Malheureusement je ne connais pas Charles pourtant il est fils de mon village : Bikfaya.
    je suis degouté,irrité par le reportage diffuse a la tele et je me demande si tel est le sort des patriotes qui aiment leur pays , et qui contre tout vents et marrees rentrent et risquent leur vie au service de ce cher pays.
    Mais pourquoi ?? et jusqu a quand ?? Nous donnons l amour, et nous recevons la haine. Nous donnons le sourire et nous recevons la mort !!
    Mais ne jettons pas l’eponge car l’espoir ne disparaitra pas et de lapocalypse surgira forcement la resurrection.

    Gloire a toi Charles Chikhani , martyr de la Liberté

  9. I was 100 meters away from the crime scene when the expolsion occured. Little did I know that my friend Charles was among the casualties. Charles and I worked together in a company for a while. It does not take long for anyone to realize just how friendly, cultured and forgiving Charles was. People like him do not deserve to die in such an ugly manner. He had a rich life ahead of him. Rest in peace my friend…

  10. Merci à vous tous, les jeunes surtout. Quelle solidarité.

    Le Liban ne nous offert que souffrances et malheurs.
    Arrêtons de nous mentir! Notre fierté et notre orgueil mal placés de Libanais … Que de souffrances!
    Laissez ce pays aux politicards de 1ère et de dernière zone! Eux ont choisi, nous non! Collateral damages!

    Jeunes du Liban : PARTEZ !!!!
    (et évitez moi le mot Destin auquel nous nous accrochons)

  11. Charles Chikhani,
    Je n’ai pas pu écrire plus tôt, car le sentiment de vengeance et de repulsion m’aurait conduit à insulter les minables qui t’ont enlevé la vie.
    Je suis maman de deux jeunes gens et j’imagine le supplice qu’endure ta famille depuis ta mort.
    Tu etais promu à un des plus beaux avenirs et des salauds ont kidnappé ta vie sans remord.
    J’ai du m’interrompre plusieurs foi en écrivant cette lettre pour essuyer mes larmes d’impuissance.
    La flamme de ta jeunesse et de ton intelligence seront toujours dans l’esprit de tous les libanais ” je parle de ceux qui aiment leur patrie” pas des traitres …..
    Ou que tu sois, et j’imagine que Dieu t’a reservé une belle place chez lui, tu seras toujours un exemple de determination, de patriotisme et d’abnegation pour toutes les generations à venir.
    Je ne te connais pas personnellement mais j’ai lu tout ce qui te concerne a travers les medias, mais je prie pour toi chaque jour lorsque je fais mes prieres….
    Je souhaite que tes parents et ta famille trouve la force de penser que finalement tu es mort physiquement, mais tout ce que tu as accompli jusqu’a ta mort restera toujours dans leurs memoires et les aideront à supporter ton absence ainsi que tous tes amis qui te cherissaient et qui t’admiraient.
    avec toute ma sympathie
    Une maman libanaise qui priera toujours pour toi
    ce n’est qu’un aurevoir ……
    tu as pris le train de la mort très tot………..
    Que Dieu te protège!

  12. UNE ETOILE DE MOINS SUR LA TERRE … UNE ETOILE EN PLUS DANS LE CIEL . CHARLES

    traduit du portuguais :

    UMA ESTRELA A MENOS NA TERRA … UMA ESTRELA A MAIS NO CÉU . CHARLES
