Why am I teaching my kids to love Lebanon?

Born in Paris and spending my childhood between Bahrain and Egypt, we only moved back to my home country of Lebanon when I started High School. The country was in the deadly civil war for 17 years so I don’t blame any parent for choosing to leave …

But now as a mother, I want my children to grow up in their homeland. I don’t want to be continuously negative and nag of how twisted this country is … even with all its constant twists and turns…

As a mother,  I dream that this country will be at peace for my children and their children…
As a citizen, I dream that I can work and build a successful career for myself …
As a human, I dream that there will be no more bloodshed based on the greed and hatred of the few…

Change starts with us. It starts on a personal level. 

Try to be positive… even when watching the news and hearing everyone around you be negative…

Try to respect others and be kind… even when you may be the only person standing in line waiting your turn…

Try to respect the law… even when everyone else stopped wearing their seat-belt and still make reckless whatsapp conversations while driving…

Try not to litter… even when everyone around you is still throwing litter from their car window…

Try listen to both sides of the story and have empathy … even when your religion or family history play a big role in your point of view…

Try to believe that YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE… even when EVERYONE around you tells you that it’s impossible…

Try… because for your children you are their ROLE MODEL … they will see how and what you do and learn from it..

And one by one if we all try… we won’t be alone…

and one by one we will start building a stronger new generation…

and change will come…

Don’t give up. In the very end… there’s no place like home…

GOOD LUCK SUPER MOMS!
