In the days after Ambassador Christopher Steven’s death, Tarek El-Messidi got to work. The thirty-something felt he needed to express the pain he and other Muslims felt that someone who worked to foster understanding died in such a violent manner. El-Messidi was stunned by the response: over seven thousand letters of condolence poured in from 115 countries. He collected those letters, bound them into a book and gave this book to Dr. Anne Stevens, Ambassador Stevens’ sister. CNN’s Emma Lacey-Bordeaux spoke with Dr. Stevens and El-Messidi about what this book means globally and personally.
