Sometimes I wish I actually had a say on things that happen around me, and not just accumulate anger in silence.
It’s impossible for me to understand the whys and hows of what’s going on in Lebanon, but it hurts enormously.
I wanted to fulfill my grandfather’s dream of visiting Beirut, but that may turn impossible. I don’t care whose fault is it— I just wish it could stop. But no, it won’t, just as the war in Iraq won’t, just as violence and ignorance in my own country won’t. Innocent people will keep dying in the name of whatever it is that one can call power’s latest disguise.
Kinda hopeless, this world, huh?
