By: The editorial Board of the Libyan International Medical University Journal.

We are publishing the first issue of LIMUJ of this year with a great sorrow for the departure of a young and active editorial board member Dr. Abdulwahab M. Elbarsha [Figure 1][1] who passed away in a tragic traffic accident. I could find no words that will express our sorrow like those quoted by the Nigerian novelist Ayobami Adebayo[2] who stated:
Figure 1: Abdulwahab M. Elbarsha (1974–2018)

(Like most who have sat with a bereft friend, relative or even stranger, I wanted to say something that could give solace. Yet what I knew reeked of despair: Grief was a wilderness with no signposts, a desert littered with mirages that made progress impossible to evaluate. I couldn't write that on a card; it felt more appropriate to preach about rainbows appearing at the end of storms. Besides, what I thought to be closer to the truth also felt inordinately personal: Since none of those who had commiserated with me had spoken about the utter bottomlessness of grief, perhaps I was the only one who had yet to see the rainbow, and nothing I had experienced could be of use to anyone).

We ask Allah to accept Him with His mercy and to dwell him in Paradise.

On behalf of LIMUJ Editorial Board team,

Prof. Abdalla Salem Elhwuegi, Chief editor
