This short video is a heart-breaking documentary on the Lebanese economic tragedy. Thank you Channel 4 News for shedding light on the suffering of a father and his son.
Indeed, the father’s tears, along with his son’s reported past suicide attempt, speak volumes about the current despair of the Lebanese people. When will systemic corruption end in Lebanon?
In Canada, we have bills that allow us to die with dignity, if we wish (thankfully). In contrast, Lebanese people are deprived of their right to just live with dignity. To end this post with music, one song comes to Bambi’s mind now. It’s Mr. Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, in an acapella version in both English and Arabic (shared earlier). May God save Bambi’s birth country from its endemic corruption and comfort its sweet people.
