The ZOOM OUT effect

Dear Lebanon

A new term has been added to the Lebanese political jargon : ZOOM OUT.
In order to downsize the estimations of protesters in Lebanon, some politicians are arguing that the cameras are not taking wide shots, and only zooming on smaller groups of people.

Being Lebanese, a synonym of pride, protesters are now defying these politicians by branding "ZOOM OUT" signs in their demonstrations.

Regardless of the actual number of protesters, I believe that at least, with a closeup or ZOOM IN, we can actually see Lebanese people... Unlike the ZOOM OUT of the "1 million person" demonstration held last November.

I have been reading your blog, I know a family there In Beruit, and A woman I am very much in Love with.
I hope all works out there, it seems like a very beutiful county, and most of the people seem very good, and want peace.
I would like to visit once things settle down.

I hope that everything will work out for the best in Lebanon. Here in the US, we know the magnitude of this and hope Lebanon will finally receive the freedom it deserves!
