Yo What up?
First, my apologies to my brethren inside and outside of Lebanon. I haven't been able to really do any blogging in the past year or so. What is going on? Seems like things have slowed down quite a bit. Any hope of reinvigoration? I would like to hear peoples thoughts on this matter.
Please give some thought to commenting on this post.
Lebanon has always been misunderstood. We are a very diverse bunch with many competing opinions. But there should be an arena online where we may all gather and express those opinions together. Violence or those advocating violence should not be a part of this arena.
Haven't we had enough?
The situation is on a knife's edge in several ways. Although I'm not blogging on it, I'm keeping close attention to what's happening from a distance. I know people are tired. And tired of the status quo. We simply need change and along with change comes fresh faces. I said that from the beginning and I'll say it again now. How can we achieve change that is fair for all parties involved? That, of course, is the question.
But the old status quo is hard to break from, similar to bad habits.
And Lebanon has a bad habit of regression. Not even regression, perhaps it's just stagnancy. As if we're stuck in a feed-back loop of insanity.
I'm not by any means saying Lebanon isn't thriving now. Because there are some bright spots. But we should be doing a lot better than we are now.
We need more cynical optimism.
I always have more to say. I just wish I had more time to say it.
That'll be all for now.
I hope everybody is doing well. I've missed ya.
