I stand With Libya

Well, peeps, there are a couple more countries to come that are plagued with violence from my “I stand with…” series. I know it’s Christmas Time and we are supposed to concentrate on shopping and being happy, but maybe that is why this series is even more critical. Violence and war don’t stop just because someone tries to remind us that peace is good.

I am always shocked at how little I know of countries that pop up in the news with their violence & wars. It is so easy to just think of them as destroyed places with traumatised people. But there is so much more to them, and Libya is enormously influential in the Mediterranean. This video from the Libyan Mission to the UN in Geneva summarises its rich history and culture, its beautiful countryside and the vast resources that outside powers try to get their hands on.

Please, as always, give a like or even a follow, as it helps the creators. And if you can’t play a video, follow the link underneath it to its YouTube location.
