The Sunday War

Roula Khalaf, Middle East editor for the Financial Times, recounts the story of the thousands of Lebanese families that chose to place their faith in their country and return to their homeland following the end the country's fifteen year civil war, only to find themselves ensnared in the new age of darkness precipitated by Hizballah's assault on Beirut, the Mountain, and the Lebanese state.

The article is long, personal, and touching. It reflects the strained emotions of everyone that has sought to build for [and from] our country something better than it has been served throughout its bloody past, but who witnessed the slashing of that dream in May, 2008.

I urge everyone to read the article in full.
