We are surely living in an extraordinary country.
I say it with pride? Well, maybe not so much, because living in an extraordinary country can be also a negative thing more than positive.

Hallum Al-Amin, a Syrian refugee, prays in the village of Qalawayeh, near the southern Lebanese town of Tyre. Amin has just marked her 100th birthday, but the celebration took place far from her home in Kansafra, in Idlib, northwest Syria, which she fled last year. Age has robbed her of some of her hearing, and Amin is almost bent in half with age, but her memory is undiminished and she can recall the names of all 13 of her grandchildren. Amin doesn’t know her exact birthday, only that she was born in 1914. The UN refugee agency UNHCR gave her a January 1 birthday and she marked her 100th year at the beginning of 2014.
