I just heard news that a rocket fell right near my parents' place. I can't believe it.
So far, even if it was close, it was far enough.
We talked to our neighbor on the phone. He was home.
He says the rocket luckily didn't explode. A dud! Can you believe it???
It's beyond me. My heart was racing for quite a while when I heard this. Speechless.
And at the same time, my mom already started talking about going back home. We're supposed to go back on Wednesday. I don't know. I don't think I can go back. I don't think I can handle it anymore. But I can't let my parents go back alone, can I?
Gosh, even now that I sit in this nice A/C café with wifi (slow wifi, but wifi nonetheless), I can't relax 100%. I guess none of us can.
I just heard Condi Rice is in Beirut. I hope it's good news. I really do. I'm not sure what the US can do as it isn't on speaking terms with many of the major players, but perhaps it could exert some influence. At the same time, many world leaders seem content Israel is doing their "dirty work" for them on the back of the Israeli and Lebanese population. I know this is the most political I've got, but I was really hoping for much earlier intervention from the world. Helping to stop this sooner. Helping to reach a good plan that could work for both Lebanon and Israel. How many more people must die before this situation can be resolved?
I can't believe this is happening.
P.S. I found this blogger who blogs from Beirut. I think she's amazing: http://cedarseed.livejournal.com/
