Faces of Lebanon
I appreciate all the kind comments and emails of support I'm receiving from the readers of this blog, expressing their solidarity and sympathy with the plight of the Lebanese people.
For those of you who have never been to Lebanon before, and only know the stories and images of death and destruction, I have created this little presentation.
Lebanon and the Lebanese seek peace and celebrate life. But Lebanon is also a country that has withstood and defied degrees of violence and turmoil that would have unravelled a lesser nation.
There are 2 faces to my country, and I am proud of both. But I insist that it never looks more beautiful as when it is lit by the radiant light of peace.
Let us end this violence, NOW.
