To The Victims of the Beirut Explosion–Aug. 4,2020

On Aug.4,2020, the people of Lebanon had experienced a massive explosion which practically destroyed a great part of their nation’s capital–Beirut.

The cause of this is due to igniting the flames coming from contact with tons of fertilizer stored in a designated storage facilty.

Whether the cause is carelessness or criminal in nature, it has yet to be determined and I hope that an intensive and impartial investigation be implemented in this Middle Eastern country that used to be a former French colony.

In my opinion, the Lebanese folks had already a lot on their plate to deal with—COVID-19, a struggling economy and societal graft & corruption.

My prayers and thoughts go out to all the people in Lebanon.

May justice prevail!
