Preserving and protecting our Lebanese culture

From Lebanese Insider:

Preserving and protecting our Lebanese culture:

Here is a quote

Pope John Paul II called Lebanon a “message” country for it’s example of diversity and pluralism for both the East and the West. Instead of shying away from Lebanon’s message, it should be our duty to embrace it and echo the authentic message of our homeland.
The biased news media will not do it for us.
The American public won’t do it for us.
Surrounding countries won’t do it for us.
We are lucky to live in a country that welcomes a ‘salad bowl’ culture — where many different cultures combine and maintain their individual uniqueness. As Lebanese-Americans we have no duty to ‘Americanize’ or assimilate into one.  The U.S. is not owned by one race, one religion, or one creed.
