A picture of the man who was assassinated a year ago today
Originally uploaded by CharlesFred.
The Prime Minister of Lebanon, Rafiq Hariri.
After so many troubles in Lebanon for so many years, the country found its peace under this man. A year ago he was shot dead, along with 13 others in Beirut. his picture still hangs (almost) everywhere in the city.
The country re-united again to condemn the killings and the Syrians left after the Cedar Revolution, but it seems as if things are slipping away again into divisions. Divisions which were very clear to us during our time in Lebanon last August.
We wish the Lebanese people well.
