A big welcome back to our troops

Never followed up from the earlier post you're thinking she's not serious ? No I've been pretty busy and life has been 'slightly' hectic in Syria lately. So much is happening too quickly. The most important is that finally our troops are returning from Lebanon. Most of us here are elated about this, because serving in Lebanon was like a punishment, our men could not get days off to go home and the circumstances were not that fantastic really it was not cakewalk being there ( I should know I'm half Lebanese) .These last few days you cannot imagine the joy of Syrian families not having to worry about their 18 year kids anymore, many are celebrating. The military service here is compulsory so no getting away from it unless you are still studying or have some kind of illness or handicap.

Here are a couple of photos of our returning men, they've done a great job and thousands died for Lebanon. I'd like to propose a toast : here's to the hope that no more of our kids would get killed instead of Lebanese men. I hope that now Lebanon can take care of itself on its own!
.....:)) enjoy while I go and have sweets and great my dear cousin !

Roses for the heroes

First post

Lurking for years on other blogs, becoming addicted, I've decided to have my own now. I would like to add my voice to the world. You want to hear about Syria? Well get the news from it's residents and not foreigners who have never set a foot here.
Enjoy your visit.
