Khalil Gibran, The Man Behind the Prophet
My Dad tells me that my grandmother kept a copy of The Prophet or just picked up at the bookstore one day. I imagine that for her and others of her generation, it was a tie or a link to Lebanon. I wasn’t born in Lebanon, but even I feel tied to the land, and a strong pull to return. I don’t think that Lebanon every leaves you if it’s in your blood. We hold on tightly to our culture, no matter where we are in the world.
