Independence Day
November 22, 2006

Today is the independence day of Lebanon. This day is celebrated every year with joy and happiness but this year it is full of darkness and depression as we bid farewell to the martyr, Sheik Pierre Gemayel. It just keeps getting worse with time. With this day, we are inclined to think and believe that Lebanon is actually an independent country whereas the fact is that it has never won its independence; there is always a stronger power controlling the government. Lebanon is a country that all the bigger guys want a piece of and has become the land where all disputes are handled irrespective of what happens to the country and its people. It might be our independence day, but I sure as hell dont feel independent. I am afraid of what the future holds.

    We always complain about Kuwait, but it's a case of that old saying 'the grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence.'

    I feel bad for Lebanon, a country with such potential - but a country which ultimately will never, ever be free.

    It's really scary to think what will happen in the future. I'm afraid the both the 14's as well as 8's will insist on going to the street and firing up demonstrations.

About Me

Name: Fonzy

About Me: In brief, I graduated from LAU in Lebanon with a double major in Busines Computer and Banking & Finance. Worked in many pubs and night clubs as a DJ, PR, and Security Comptroller. Now I'm in Kuwait.... been here since September 2005. Im working two jobs, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon, and a third project is on the way, which will be a great hit if it works out and i sleep max 5 hours a day. Its a chilled life, mostly work, and occasional outings. In Kuwait, I use my brain cells, then go to Lebanon and burn them:D But one fact remains unchanged and will always be.... I MISS LEBANON!!!!!
