Free Lebanon Today

F	Fight to win a just and equal deal
R	Rights demand today, and do not kneel!
E	Equal in demand for means to live
E	Equal in demand that leaders give

L	Liberty to seek and speak the truth
E	Energy to fight all the uncouth
B	Bastions of belief that change will come
A	Adamance for all to gain not some
N	Nation first, and not a party’s greed
O	Onslaught in the streets of those in need
N	Narrative of choice is Freedom’s voice

T	Time, a witness of the people’s pain
O	Objects of the ones who pocket gain
D	Duty sold for bribes of highest price
A	Actor-leaders play with lives like dice
Y	Young and old! Bring back the Golden Age

It's a sad fact of life that we all at some point in time have to fight for our freedom. I hope the Lebanese people rise up and defeat those forces that keep it in ruins. Have a great day my friend.

I remember when Lebanon was the 'Switzerland of the Middle East.'... Too bad Lebanon didn't do to Arafat's men what King Hussein of Jordan did. History may recall it as a bloodbath in the Jordan River, but King Hussein saved his country from ruination. Regardless of all the 'globalism' cries from youth --- and it was ever aye --- there is a point to defending one's country and keeping the terrorists and lowlifes at bay! Love your message! Happy Sunday to you. Joy and Light, Gershon

Such a beautiful acrostic Eileen, great imagery throughout with a heart for your birth land. Have a blessed day, Gordon

yes, I recall as a youth reading about Lebanon in the bible and then learning of it in geography class and it was my favorite of the mideastern places I read about.

Your pen is powerful, Eileen. I believe that our pens and voices came make a difference around the world. I am praying for you and your beautiful country. I am saddened by the evil and greed of this world, but I try to be hopeful and prayerful, otherwise the weight of it would crush me. Sending much love and prayers to you, Rhonda xx

I have been following for decades what is going on in Lebanon and, I regret to say, that the situation brews troubles. Your Acrostic is what Lebanon needs to find peace! God bless Lebanon and you my dearest, Eileen! Filakia!

I always heard such lovely things about your country. I do not know all that is going on there, but I pray your beloved country gets the freedom it deserves.

Your poetic voice of passion is finely honed, dear Eileen. Your demands for en end to corruption, injustice, economic oppression, greed, and bribery are eloquent and to the point. I wish the best for you and your beautiful nation. I am sorry to hear things feel so bleak for you, but never lose hope, my friend. Your voice is an important part of the change that needs to occur. Thank you for your visit today. God bless you ~ John

Thanks for the visit, sorry to hear you are feeling sad. I haven’t been very inspired of late. Thanks for the soup mail and for looking out for me. Hugs Rick.

Well written with great passion!

I hope people talking about it and with the help of artists like you that the message will bring change. Hugs Rick.

I can understand how you feel about all this, Eileen. Many people want peace and what is rightfully theirs, and nothing more. Politics has often been turned into an ugly game because for some greed is hard to resist. I well know, for even my country has suffered these past seven years! We need change. Love & Hugs // paul
