Born in Lebanon

Ghia Haddad

I initially started this piece as a reaction to the financial crisis in Lebanon, where the currency, since September 2019, has lost more than 85% of its value. As I was working on it, the catastrophic explosion that rocked the Lebanese capital on August 4, 2020, brought back painful memories of destruction and devastation from a childhood interrupted by war. Witnessing Beirut’s destroyed homes and traumatized citizens carrying bloodied relatives to overfilled hospitals, hearing its stories of friends dealing with the pain of loss and destruction, and watching its blown up homes and businesses take me back to the city of my birthplace. And I revert to the little girl in that painting; a layer of life between the corruption of a system that swallows its own people and the fires that rage in its wake. But what all Beirutis know all too well is this: the only way forward is up-and life, in the end -somehow- is the only way to win.
