Lebanese Jester

Me, my Lebanon, and I.com weblog

13th of April; a stolen childhood !

This is nothing but, as we say back home “mourour al kiram”; depicting a small percentage of events which forged a generation that is now controlling the destiny of our nation and children.
I am part of this generation which is lost in limbo, somewhere between a false sense of patriotism and a deep guilt for having followed and engaged in acts that were against our morals and religious teachings.
This was Lebanon then.
I will leave it up to you to watch and formulate your own opinion.
N.B: Always keep in mind that this nothing but a mere fraction of what actually took place.

  4. Indeed those were (very) bad times, but we can’t just let it go to the dust bin of history… or someday our children will repeat our “deeds”, and the same way, in the darkest hour, the same question will arise: “how did we got ourselves in THIS mess ?”

    Never again!

    That’s why it’s so important the “history lessons” the leb blogsphere is spreading.
