Lebanon POW 13-19March

In this week’s Lebanese POW, I tended to move a bit away from the bad news that was happening mainly about explosions and rockets here and there, and trying to focus more on the bright things happening.

In addition to the photos, 2 youtube videos has been added at the end, don’t forget to share what you think about those two also in the comment section.

Lebanon POW 6-12March

Protesting and demonstrating are basic elements of any democratic country.

It is one of many ways a person, group, community can object and raise their voice with, and not to forget, the most civilized and peaceful way.

And as  Leonardo da Vinci once said: “Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence”.

Lebanon POW: 13-19 February

For a moment of time today, the previous version of International POW would have been the last one to be published.

It was more as a matter of luck today as I passed by the explosion of today just almost 15 minutes before it blew up.

It is very scary to think of death, and even more scary when knowing that death is just around the corner.

May we find peace, somehow, in Lebanon.
