On the night of October 17, 2019, people went down to the streets in Lebanon. We all had a similar feeling, not sure what it was, but it definitely included anger. Thus started the revolution in Lebanon. People went down the streets full of hope, everyone thought: this is it. It’s happening. At first, it was full of adrenaline, no one knew what was going on but we knew we had to stand our ground. Shortly after the first night, after the violence and tear gas, people noticed what kind of police state we live in and the amount of hate built up over the decades for this government, I realized this was going to take time. Time, energy, and sacrifices.
