A eulogy for Lebanon's historical and urban heritage

We deplore to you our dearly departed
With a lot of sadness and sorrow
After a long struggle with haphazard concrete building.
Its mothers, women losing their houses every day,
Its children, youngsters who only want a space
With a little greenery and a glimpse of sun,
Its fathers, men losing their identity, history and roots,
Accept condolences
On the 1st of March at 3 P.M. in Mar Michael, Armenia Street
And on the 2nd of March at 11 A.M. in Rmeil behind the Maronite Archbishopric
