Yesterday marked an epic important day that will stay in History for ever. All the world was watching an exceptional phenomenal magical modern fairytale royal wedding that mixed two different cultures and heritages and injected an era where we could witness the beginning of a new world where hundreds of years of traditions were exchanged with love and only love despite all.
Most of the world welcomed this extremely perfect royal wedding, while others were still processing the event. Yes love has conquered all barriers and History that made men once fight and kill and steal the life and freedome of other men just for different race or culture or skin color.
Yesterday was a miracle of God that love exists inside every human being only if we accept it and let it show. The sermon served by a black priest in an old chappel of hundreds of years of age belonging to a heritage of the people who were once taking black people as slaves was historical point in the right direction for reminding us of who we really are, and the purpose of us living in this world and emphasizing the most powerful and meaningful feeling amongst all: Love !
“When love is the way — unselfish, sacrificial, redemptive, when love is the way. Then no child would go to bed hungry in this world ever again. When love is the way. We will let justice roll down like a mighty stream and righteousness like an ever flowing brook. Wen love is the way poverty will become history. When love is the way the earth will become a sanctuary. When love is the way we will lay down our swords and shields down by the riverside to study war no more. When love is the way there’s plenty good room, plenty good room for all of God’s children”. A beautifully memorizable words that will mark for years and decades to come.
The love story of the newly royal wed is indeed a fairytale. They were like two ordinary people that went out on a blind date and the magic and chemistry and that fire sparks happened between them. Despite from where they come, they declared their historical love that was blessed yesterday by marriage bond. I could see her telling herself that it’s an every girl dream that is coming true. The way they looked to each other, the smiles the whispering words, the kiss, it was just like watching a happy ending movie that rarely becomes true in real life. But it did !
The wedding ceremony was the hit for the whole world. And as much as I felt the love and yes maybe a little of jealousy, but I also felt that sometimes people can be blinded by something that should be also the center of attention, especially when they are in an indirect or direct way leading to the injustice lived.
Days before the wedding, people, children were dying at Gaza for protesting against the injustice toward their territories, which is a clear message of their suppremacy from that land of theirs. The land, that was in time forcefully taken from them and presented to others by some kind of international agreement approved by UK at the time. And the night before the wedding, children were killed and injured in a massive shotgun accident inside a school in the US. which makes me wonder about the message this wedding is trying to show. Would it be for the justice all over the world, for ending the wars, the hate among people, and instead spreading the love all over inside and outside the Kingdom walls?
Black people have fought for hundreds of years for their freedome from a fact that was forced on them. But their will to make a change and break the walls have led them to the most powerful positions in the world, and now to the royal kingdom. It happened, not without any difficulties or sacrifices or hard work, but with fierce strength and hope for a better future for their entire community. I wish we could do the same as they did, to fight for our right position and force our freedome from every intruder. We can live in a peace and love with each other, despite our differences and believes. If we can unit our will to love and to live, we can begin seeing our similarities and compassion for each other as human being, and we will learn to accept and embrace each other. This is what I am hoping to see someday, a world where the love we witnessed yesterday in the eyes of the prince and her higness to be as contagious as ever inside the heart and mind of us all. It is a message for all of us to step aside our fights and wars, and welcome Love in all aspects against all hatred and evilness happening around the world.
And although it is a wish that seems to be far away from achieving, knowing the situation of people at higher positions and the mind of some people, but it is not impossible, as miracles and happy endings will happen in real life, just like this wedding happened.
I believe in a world where we can show and emphasize the love. I believe if we believe the same we will reach our goals. Some of us did and made Lebanon to be viewed in a positive view all around the world: Elie Saab, Shakira, Amal Clooney, Nadine Labaki to name a few. We can be proud of them and proud of ourselves if we took their lead and showed a best picture we all want to be seen, a brighter future for all far away from political games and racial and ethnic issues. We come to this world once, to make a marker in each other’s life, to make a mark in history, if not in written history in our family, friends and children’s history, and then to leave this world as we came with nothing at all except our work done while we were living spirits in this Universe.
At the end of the day, and in the chaos of all this propaganda, all I could think of is that moment when the prince looked at his bride and told her how amazing she looks, and the tears he had when seeing her at her wedding gown. At that moment, I saw the reflection of your eyes staring at mine with the same passion and feeling and love, someday. It is a dream, my dream ! And if Meghan’s dream came true, mine could make it too, so I wished for you to come around one day, I wished to be us together in this world, to stand side by side, in sickness and in health, in richer and in poorer, to go to all those places I’m dying to experience with you, only you, this would be my own fairtytale, you would be my own prince, and I could live happily evert after in your kingdom, in your heart. I just hoped and wished,,,
