A Martyr’s Funeral

A Funeral in Lebanon

We watched so many funerals since 2005, they all look the same, A coffin with a flag over it carried by men taking the martyr to his final destination. Women throw rice on the convoy, patriotic music is played and if the martyr is young people try to make the funeral look like a wedding.

At every funeral we also feel the same thing, we are angered by the death and we promise the martyr to continue his path and rebuild the country yet we still haven’t build anything.

I am tired of all this! We all want to live in peace! More then 1500 person died in Lebanon since 2005! We lived 2 years of death and destruction it’s time we build a country!!
