In Memory of Steven Robin Olejas

We lost our dear friend and colleague, Steven, during the Algiers bombing of the UN building. Steven, with whom we had worked in DCA, was a sincere and kind person who talked so fast he left people reeling and asking each other "can someone tell me what he was talking about". We will miss him terribly and we send our sincerest condolences to Susanne, his wife and the 3 children.
The meaningless terror which the bombers unleashed leaves all of us empty trying to understand the reasons why people like Steven, who try to make the world a better place, have to be killed.
We will miss him.

I'm so sorry to hear of this loss to the effort of making the world a better place.
It seems though, that he has already left his mark on all the souls he had come into contact with up til his untimely death.
Life is mind-boggling.
Love,
