Dahyieh Explosion – wordless

August 16, 2013

No words can describe yesterday’s explosion in Dahyieh, Beirut being targeted day in and out. I will not analyze the excuses, prerequisites and consequences. The loss of lives is not an occasion for finger pointing, it is a time of mourning. The words and “opinions” of people in the digital space are filled with hate, those in pain and those in joy likewise. I keep betting on humanity, It seems i will be broke very soon.

Mashrou’ Leila have never failed to speak to my heart and this speaks right to the core of today’s pain.

I’m trying to gather the names of those that have passed in the explosion, I hate that every time souls are degraded to numbers and rarely if ever we get the chance to take a moment, see that humans are humans everywhere, they have faces, name, parents, children and lives just like you and me. Maybe then we would start to cherish human lives more than counting tickers.
