When from Lebanon
Jessica Semaan

Thank you for the beautiful contrasts in each section! As someone of Lebanese descent I completely understand that bittersweet feeling, but also identified some problems with the romanticization we’re so obsessed with. I’d like to share with you my views on it below:

“We are a people of a past participles. We glorify our beautiful history, yet we don’t bring it forward and use its lessons to empower our youth and decorate our future.”
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
