The magnificent baalbek, its construction still an archaelogical mystery. made from giant megaliths, the size of the stones are astoundingly large, making it the biggest single rock to be used in construction, in all history.
"continued from prior post: the war finally ended. today, 30 years later, the great majority of lebanese still have to rely on a power generator, at least part of the day, that is if they can afford it. gone are the individual generators: most people have a generator subscription from one of the many business suppliers, that offers as much power as one wants/can afford, enough to light up the whole house, ac units, tv, fridge, elevator, basically everything, and they use it on a daily basis when the main power goes off.
sadly, with the rapidly deteriorating economy, gaslights may be on their way back soon, if not the good old candles and old-fashioned lanterns. the article tells of a poor man with a life-threatening lung disease who relies on his power-operated breathing machine, his daily struggle to stay alive, and his absolute terror every time he hears the sound of silence when power heartlessly disappears. it paints the picture of desolation and helplessness as that silence hits and the people awaken to their reality and the ever darkening tomorrows.
little did my father know then... he believed in his country. he stayed loyal to it and never left when he could... and what did that get him and the millions like him at this stage in his life?
turns out the power is unlikely to ever come back on, until the "powerful" are off its lifeline and that of its citizens. only then can people again believe in colorful tomorrows and the power of dreams. as each lantern or candle is lit in these dark cold december nights, may a thousand souls turn ablaze and unapologetically, unhesitantly stand up for their sacred rights as the citizens of this ancient land. it should always be "we the people!!!!" anywhere, any time.
