A voice from Lebanon
Laury Haytayan writes:
A month a go on July 12 at 11:45 am, my husband asked me to get my son from the nursery because a friend told him that something bad might happen in the country. Today, on August 12, my son is not at the nursery, he is not in his house, he is not in his bed with 1 million other Lebanese that turned to refugees.
Today the UN Security Council adopted the resolution 1701 that they say is the best thing for all parties to end the aggression.
Today, the Lebanese government accepted the resolution.
Today, the IDF has intensified its military operations.
Today, I am still confused about the war.
Today, I am still wishing that this whole thing will turn out to be a nightmare.
Today, I am still cross with Sayyed Hassan Nassrallah.
Today, I do not trust the IDF and the Israeli government.
But today, after a whole month of destruction, killings and hatred I am still a strong believer in Peace.
I will do whatever it takes; I will go wherever I have to go to see peace prevailing in this region.
May you never loose that faith, Laury, and may hope your life be
