800,000 March For Lebanon Freedom
Will it re-spark the anti-Hezbollah, anti-Syria, pro-democracy movement in Lebanon?
The Star's story makes one think it's a possibility:
- A convoy of 1,500 vehicles left Sidon for Beirut
- 300 physicians and nurses stood in their white coats in a moment of silence.
- Fishermen had Hariri's picture tied to their fishing gear.
- Volunteers from the Future Movement guided traffic.
- "Hariri is on my heart and in my mind," said an 70-year-old shopkeeper, who decorated her candy shop with his picture and Lebanese flags.
Yes, gaining control is tough -- especially when Hezbollah is targeting the anti-Syrian movement's leaders in its continuing bomb attacks -- but we can only hope that the people of Lebanon will succeed in driving out all the scoundrels, Syrian and home-grown alike.
