Rare handwritten letter by Gibran Khalil Gibran to May Ziade:
Beloved May, my people, the people of Mt Lebanon are perishing through a famine which has been planned by Turkish government. 80 000 already died.
Thousands are dying every day. The same things that are happening in Armenia are happening in Syria. Mount Lebanon being a Christian country is suffering the most.
You can imagine , May,what I am going through just now. I can nor sleep nor eat nor rest.All the Syrians are being tortured in the same way.We are trying to do our best. We must save those who are still alive.
Oh May,it is too much to hear,too much. Pray for us beloved May: Help us with ur thoughts.
Love from suffering Khalil.
