Stand strong Lebanon! Stay safe everyone!

I was going to write a normal post but I felt it’s more appropriate to give tribute to a country that always bounces back. lebanon-2131274_1920.jpg

This country I have been wanting to visit for such a long time and explore that part of my ancestry. However, there always something happening in this country that made me want to visit later. When the climate was more peaceful. beirut-5172850_1920 I’m sure most of you all know by now what has happened in Lebanon. Two huge explosions hit the capital city. Everything in a 6-mile radius was hit by the boom of the second explosion. Right now, a confirmed 70 people have lost their lives. If you saw the videos, I’m sure the death toll will probably be near or above 1000. It is currently being under investigation to see if this was a terrorist attack or not. In my heart and gut feeling, I have a suspicion that this was a terrorist attack. coast-4845995_1920.jpg

They said it was a fireworks factory that blew up. The first explosion I can see it possibly being caused by what the chemicals fireworks are made out of. However, the second explosion looked different. palm-trees-5162018_1920.jpg

Stand strong to a beautiful and small country that always bounced back. A small country that had such a big impact on the world. Through its history, diaspora, and culture.

 

Stay safe everybody and enjoy your loved ones. There were a lot of people who woke that day thinking it was going to be normal. Who are now not able to have another chance to wake up again.

 

Only love here!

  1. This is horrific! And so sudden a tragedy. CNN this morning said probably not a terrorist attack, even tho Trump said so, since there was no military mobilization afterward.

    From https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/05/middleeast/beirut-blast-explainer-intl-hnk/index.html:

    Prime Minister Hassan Diab said that about 2,750 metric tons of ammonium nitrate, a highly explosive material, had been stored at a port warehouse for the past six years “without preventive measures.”
    Lebanon’s general security chief said a “highly explosive material” had been confiscated years earlier and stored in the warehouse, which is just a few minutes’ walk from Beirut’s shopping and nightlife districts.
    According to local media, the head of Lebanon’s customs authority said he had sent six memos to the country’s judiciary warning that substances being stored in the port were dangerous to the public.

    I’ll be watching for any more news. Also a place I’d love to visit, but like you always thought later in life when safe. Now this tragedy! STAND STRONG LEBANON!

  2. Deepest condolences to the people who have lost family/loved ones. sending my prayers of healing, safety and protection to the people of Beirut… sad day for humanity.

  3. We looked into that this morning in our session. We got that it was another false flag, done by the government to use as an excuse for military control and more oppression for the people. Sounds unbelievable and it is very sad but countries have been doing this for a long time. So many dark agendas focused on keeping the fear, panic, obedience stream going. Time for a new timeline!

      • Most governments around the world are dark and have a dark agenda, are corrupt and focused on harm, greed,power and control..
        The US included. Look at 9/11.

  4. Apparently, the explosion was caused by explosives stored in the port for over six years. People have hit the streets to protest the government’s negligence and no terrorist group has laid claim on the attack just yet. I do hope you get to visit soon.
