The Mosaic Identity

Excerpt from “Return to Our Roots” Part 1

Rabih Aridi

Dear daughters and sons of Lebanon,

As the offspring of the beautiful land that contributed so much of culture, history and civilization, you carry the ingredients of a profound and great heritage that enables you to understand the values of multiculturalism and appreciate how colorful ethnic backgrounds mesh together to create and shape the mosaic identity of dynamic cultures.

Although different ethnic elements are as unique as the strokes of a painter’s brush, it is their common respect for humanity and human kind that makes the overall picture rich and appealing. Carrying the torch that shines the light on human rights and human dignity will make you the best ambassadors any country or culture could ever hope for.

With best wishes to all of you.
