Keeping It Current: Beirut

So, apparently one major act of terrorism a week isn’t enough.

On Thursday, on the same side of the globe in Lebanon, two suicide bombers decided to detonate themselves in the southern part of Beirut, in a predominately Shia area (a third bomber’s body was found, but never detonated). The attack took place during the busiest time of the day, where families often gathered after the work day has ended. They killed over 40 people and wounded at least 200 others. This is truly a tragic incident that was spurred by nothing but hate and ignorance. Innocent lives were taken. In fact, MORE innocent lives were taken.

My heart extends to those in Beirut. I know it’s not much, and I cannot even begin to understand what they are going through right now, but I would like to offer my most heartfelt sorrow and condolences to the families of the lives lost. May you come out of this stronger and better than ever.

 بحره برّه درّة الشرقين رِفدُه برّهُ مالئ القطبين إسمه عزّه منذ كان الجدود مجدُهُ أرزُهُ رمزُهُ للخلود كلّنا للوطن للعلى للعلم كلّنا للوطن
بحره برّه درّة الشرقين
رِفدُه برّهُ مالئ القطبين
إسمه عزّه منذ كان الجدود
مجدُهُ أرزُهُ رمزُهُ للخلود
كلّنا للوطن للعلى للعلم
كلّنا للوطن
