Happy Independence day

Jordan: Happy Independence Day

Today, may 25th, is the 62nd anniversary of the independence of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

I wish my country all prosperity and advancement. I hope that, when next year come, all of our fuel problems, by the help of the oil rock, will have been solved.

Jordan might not a huge or rich country. But, I am sure that it is rich in the goodness of its citizens. Having all the money of the world isn’t as important as being the way simple Jordanians are. If you want to know what I mean, why not come and visit Jordan? “We should be like you!” A Canadian volunteer once told me envying what he experienced of the generosity and kindness of many Jordanians.

All in all, most people in the world love their countries. In my opinion, one must be faithful to the country where he was born. After all, an Arab poet once said:

بلادي وإن جارت علي عزيزة

وأهلي وإن ظنوا عليّ كرامُ

Trying to bring a suitable translation:

My country, even if it was unfair to me, is dear.

My family members, even if they thought badly about me, are benevolent.
