Two weeks passed by since the explosion took place. Thankfully, we received a lot of help from all over the world. Many experts and specialists are still here inspecting, helping, working with locals. Beirut narrow streets are over crowded.
What can I say about the general feeling? It is a mix of entangled feelings that words can’t sum up: despair, depression, sadness, fear, anxiety, frustration… Sometimes words are useless.
This explosion is beyond any war. As war people ourselves, we know that any war takes time to destroy a city. Meanwhile, people escape or know what to do because we are used to deal with troubles. However, this explosion destroyed half of the city in minutes. It swiped up lives, houses, families, memories and future plans.
