Believe it or not: today is Lebanon’s “Independence” Day

Independence from whom? From what?

From external forces that keep pushing it into this or that direction?

Or internal forces of systemic corruption or of other kind of selfish interests and ambitions?

Regardless, Bambi loves you Lebanon. She will always do, despite any component of a “love-hate” relationship that the people of this tiny, now bankrupt, yet old and beautiful country may feel.

She wishes you stability, respect (self- and from others), prosperity, peace, love… and hopefully a President, along with functional institutions.

Yes, a country that comes FIRST, regardless of who is in charge (behind the official scenes or for real). A country for all its citizens. A country, not just to keep “dreaming of” (like in the song below), but also a country to honour and to be respected by.
