I was born in beirut in 1970. My family left soon after the war began and I haven't been back in over 20 years. I was planning on visiting with my two year old son but the plans were aborted when the fighting began.

We're in Montreal and many of us here are flying the cedar flag on our cars to remind everyone of what's going on.

I'm enclosing a picture of my son with the flag.

I'm a writer and have begun a series of short stories on the Lebanon I remember if you would be inerested... I've never written about my country before but recent events have broght forth a torrent of memories...

I hope to return home soon and show my son where his people hail from.
