Happy Independence Day to the country I call my home and I’m a citizen in.
But are we really independent? Have we really taken are independence and are not taking advice from foreign countries, that have nothing to do with our country except cause extra struggles? Are we even united as a matter of fact? How can we be united when there is so many political groups whose sole purpose is to increase the potential of their being a civil war and hold on to their chairs? How can we call ourselves a nation if we are not united? A nation gives it’s citizens civil and political rights, males specifically. But what about the women, who can’t pass their nationality to their children?
We should celebrate the great minds of this country, the artists, scientists, politicians, etc… everything that we are proud of. Their is so much to be proud of, our history our landscape, our entertainment, our literature, etc… And we should set this 70 year as a start to better this country, to stop taking what our next step would be from outsiders. And we can’t split, because the last thing Lebanon needs right now is to split and have another civil war.
This is the time for Lebanon to take a stand and unite as people.
