Amidst the turmoil and the war torn land of Lebanon,There grows again a flower of hope! A cease fire has been declared and the smoke has cleared to reveal not just the destruction the war has wrought, but the promise of a future once again! The Blogger from Lebanon
Has just written a beautiful post on just this!
The Land of the Pheonix and its people
This is a very realistic and a historic look at the ancient regions from where he hails,And the future there as well! There is a message in his words,one that carries over here to us,one we all could learn a lesson from! In the middle of such destruction this man voices the hopes of the people there that there is still a future!This is not a political message nor is this post,Just a hope for peace,and for life to once again continue there! Please put side any thoughts or beliefs you might have, and go read this!
You won't regret it!
~Thank You~

Well...call me cynical...(all at once yell it..one..two..three.. ...)
I don't know what to think...I don't know the author..but here are a few random thoughts off the top of my head.

1. He is a christian who knows knows his bible very well and aludes to faith and the resurection of christ as a symbol of hope

2. He does have an agenda and uses the story of the phinox as a mataphor that rings well with christians becouse of the similarties with christian faith. Why...becouse Hesballa hides with in the populace of Lebenon..so good will toward Lebenon is good will to Hesballa.

3. He is a great writer showing his defience to the fates..or Isearl...

4. He is a man trying to hold on to hope anyway he can

I hold on to the imagery of the story, becouse I have started over..again and again and again...destruction of life doesn't always come in the droping of bombs..."not with a bang..but with a whimper..and with a wimper I'm outta here" (Apocolips Now)

Hello Friend! you have every right to being cynical! And I applaud you for reading him,You had an open enough mind to see much the same as I there...While I can't say on the agenda,I read the man for his words,And he paints a very nice picture with them! Very good analogy you have there! And I too have lost and lost,that's why I can Identify with his post! Thanx for Following through~
