Gorillity.....

As you are all aware, this blog has been out of actions for months now. Mostly because I'm just sick of the whole political scene in Liban lately.

Nevertheless, I was really touched by the recent news of that Gorilla, who refused to give in her dead baby, and carried him/her around in a touchy scene that says a lot. Below you can see the mourning mom carrying her baby in pain an grief.


On the very same day at the hospital (pediatrics ward) came a 9-year-old-child in an emergency directly from Tripoli.
The poor kid was shot by a gun he was playing with!!!! Yes you are reading this correctly, the 9-year-old-kid was playing with a gun. In fact, his own father was teaching him how to use the gun, when a bullet was accidentally fired, targeting the kid at his neck level...leaving him with total paralysis and on mechanical ventilators.

Not only that, but while we were doing everything possible to save the poor kid, his father and uncle were discussing the new refile the father just bought, and how he got his hands on special shells; that explode upon hitting its target, causing even more damage, and showing the rest of the family the new video he took while firing mortars shells in Tripoli during the last clashes!!!!!

His own son was dying, and all he was thinking about is bragging about his new killing weapon!!!

They say HUMANITY....we have reached a stage where we would be asking for some GORILLITY instead.......
