Proud of my country

Length: 3 Pages 697 Words

Extraordinary People People are brought up to be proud of their country and of the achievement of their own nationals. Even when individuals are taken away from their home countries, most people still express a lot of pride for what their homeland has achieved. Although I have spent most of my life away from my country Lebanon, and even though this is a nation that for many years was known for its civil war, and more recently because of its chaos and corruption, I am still proud of it because of its early civilization, recovery from war and ambitions for its natives. Through out history, Lebanese people had an impact on all civilizations around the Mediterranean basin, and beyond. Phoenicians, the ancestors of modern Lebanese, were a nation of sailors that have braved the waves in search of opportunities. As a result of this their civilization reached far away places. They spread the alphabet around the world, traded with other nations, created outposts like Cartage that had an impact on the western world for some time in the Continue...

All of these accomplishments make me proud being one of their descendents. Lebanon"tms population is very small, about 4 million people, but there is not a city or a town in the world, which does not have Lebanese residents. To conclude, many factors and causes make me proud of the achievements of my country and its people, but the most important factors I believe are the desire of the Lebanese people to live and appreciate life, their determination to move on and look forward to the future, and their outstanding achievements all over the world in different fields of science, commerce and economics. This unique characteristic of my people has made me realize that even though my country is a small one, the achievements of its people on the international level are outstanding. Furthermore, everywhere I travel, from Dubai to Washington D. Over the years, I have learned that this is the nature of my people and my country; travelers, adventurers and entrepreneurs who seek opportunities without caring about how far or how difficult the trip is. For example, I felt very proud when I read an article about the invention of electricity in the early 20th century and it turned out that a Lebanese immigrant to the US, Kamel Sabbah, was one of the first scientists who came across this discovery, even before Thomas Alva Edison. Three years later when I returned, an entire new city had been rebuilt that bears no resemblance to what was there only a few years ago. Had it not been for some of the destroyed buildings that were still showing the ugly effect of the war I would not have believed that this was Beirut. In 1995, I went on a trip to the city center of Beirut for the first time in my life. C, or from Paris to Sydney, I come across fellow Lebanese who live and work in those cities. It was completely devastated, not a single human being lived in that place which was then home to all kinds of wild animals and weeds. However, the real cause of my pride was the ability of my fellow Lebanese to stand up together and work on creating a future that was nothing close to the chaotic and ravaged present.
