Don't let history repeat itself...

Voila ce que j'ai compris

Eh oui, it takes 21 days to form a habit.
Donc ça se lance. Je lis! et ç'est pas dire que je comprends tout ce que je lis mais bon c'est parti.

-Ce livre devrait me permettre de résoudre le conflit au Proche-Orient, d'avoir mon diplôme et de trouver une femme.

Of Malcolm Kerr or the Symbol of Resilience

Malcolm Kerr, a highly respected American Arabist, stayed on as president, keeping alive a small flame of optimism for the future of AUB and his beloved Lebanon.
On January 18, Kerr left the president's house and walked across the quiet, tree-shaded campus, passing under the old stone archway bearing the inscription "That They May Have Life and Have It More Abundantly". He entered College Hall and went to his office on the second floor. Outside the door, two young men stepped out of an adjacent hall, raised their pistols, and fired. Kerr died instantly.
