Love should not plainly based on sentiment but also the unique personality of both sides. Without this, what you “love” is only the scent of romance but not one another.
Tens of thousands of books were lost to fire when a library in Lebanon was set ablaze.
Officials said unknown arsonists torched Tripoli’s Saeh Library, or Traveler’s Library, Friday after claims that its founder, Father Ibrahim Sarouja, a Greek Orthodox priest, had written an anti-Islamic online article and that anti-Islamic materials had been found in the library.
A source told Agence France-Presse that the reports were unfounded; a protest against the priest had been planned and called off — and then the fire followed.
Sarouja founded the library in 1972. It moved to Tripoli’s Serail neighborhood a decade later; photographs of the library before the fire show an ancient building full of shelves of books. It is estimated that the fire claimed two-thirds of its 80,000 books.
I’m making my frowniest face.
Everytime a library is ruined, burnt or destroyed, a star dies.
I have no idea what to say. But words and books have their own power which might trigger something good or just tragedy. Therefore, be careful.
BUT THE LIBRARY AND OTHER BOOKS ARE INNOCENT!!! (/´Д｀)/
