What you, and many people feel you are missing, is very simple. It is peace, an element that many claim to value, and incorporate into their lives, but that is simply not true. Peace has been morphed, mutated, misrepresented by so many of (more…)

evolution gone wrong - ahmad al charif blog

The human race is in a constant state of evolution, so to speak. The things that we used to do as children, are not even a remote possibility to the children of today, and this has been true for a number of generations past.

“It will be the battle of a century!” He said to me. “Tonight of all nights, on this beautiful and magical evening filled with hope, i shall beat you once and for all! Victory, is mine!”

Heroes are not made in this world, but they are rather born into it. And they are many, though most pass you by unnoticed, undetected. Because a hero is built differently, molded with a unique set of ideals and morals that to the average person, a hero might be perceived as bizarre, if not (more…)

Frustrated Lebanese people, Creatively De-stressing!

So i was driving in Beirut today, trying to get to work, nothing special, same as everybody else, when i am confronted with a red light. Now first thought that came to my head was “just wing it” but then i somehow found myself stopping, respecting the signal.
