My Speech at the Event in French & English

French

Aujourd’hui, le fermier se tient parmi vous fatigué mais point épuisé, pessimiste mais point désespéré. Il sait que sa mission est difficile mais pas impossible. Il se sent toujours réconforté par l’amour et l’attention que lui portent ses amis, et qui lui font sentir qu’il n’est pas seul. Il est décidé de poursuivre ses buts, n’importent les sacrifices qu’il doit consentir.

Il a décidé de lancer les Graines du Changement de son école ; ce qui a produit des semis de Changement. Il a lancé son oeuvre modeste le 27 Avril, date significative pour tous les Libanais, pour dire que nous sommes tous nés libres, et nous sommes tous appelés à réaliser le changement sur notre terre, du Moyen-Orient.

Lancer un livre le Lundi qui suit le nouveau Dimanche c’est semer de nouvelles graines dans un terrain inexploité ; c’est se libérer de la rancune du passé sans oublier les leçons précieuses qu’on en déduit.
Je ne puis dire combien d’amour j’ai besoin pour garder vivant en moi l’enfant, le rêveur et l’homme affectueux.

Je lutte pour croire toujours que chaque matin est le premier de ma vie, qu’il existe de méchanceté mais pas des méchants, qu’il existe parmi nous le mal mais pas le démon. Je lutte pour garder vivant en moi l’enfant villageois authentique sans se sentir un étranger.

Souvent, l’enfant en moi souffre mais n’en a pas marre encore, il se sent seul mais toujours garde dans l’esprit que son Seigneur s’est aussi senti seul !!!

Il est ici pour dire qu’il gardera toujours l’espoir pour le Liban et le Moyen-Orient. Il sait que parfois le soleil se lève pour inaugurer un nouveau jour pour l’humanité loin du désespoir. Entre temps, il travaille, prie et tente de garder son âme loin du démon.

First of all, I would like to thank ESA for all the support it gave me; moreover special thanks are accorded to my collaborators at the Regie Libanaise du Tabbac that sponsored the launching event. Furthermore, Sucleen donation was important to me to have the book published, & Fransabank contribution was essential to sponsor its design works. I do thank all those who worked vividly to make this event a success from behind the scenes & those who came to be physically with me in this special occasion.
The Farmer stands nowadays among you all tired but not exhausted, pessimistic but not hopeless. He knows that his mission is hard but not impossible. He feels always comforted by the love & care of his friends, since they make him feel that he is not alone. He is still determined to go for his goals no matter what the sacrifices he is to make.
He decided to launch his Seeds of Change from his university; which meant to produce seedlings of Change. He launched his little work on the 27th of April, which has significance to all Lebanese in order to say that we all are born free & invited to make the change in our terrain of the Middle East.
To launch a book on a Monday that follows the new Sunday, like seeming news seeds in an unexploited terrain; it is also to free oneself from the grudge of the past without forgetting its precious lessons.
I do not know how much love I need, to keep the child, the dreamer & the loving in me living. I do struggle to keep on believing that every morning is the first in my life, that there is wickedness & not wicked people, that there is wrong & no devil among us. I struggle to keep in me the authentic villager boy without feeling a stranger.
The boy in me suffers seldom but he is not fed up yet, he feels lonely but keeps always in mind that his lord felt lonely too!!!
He is here to say that he will always hold good hopes for Lebanon & the Middle East. He knows that sometimes the sun will rise & a new dawn for humanity will spring out of despair. Meanwhile, he works, prays& tries to keep his soul away from the devil.
