A new blogger has joined the fray here on Kuwait Unplugged, his name is Moryarti and he lives in Dubai. Moryarti grew up in Kuwait and his parents still live here. He came to visit them during the past Eid holidays and filed this excellent report. I was almost moved to tears when I read it, along with the great comments on his post. It's been too long since I read something warm and positive about Kuwait, so I felt I had to share it with you.
I could copy and paste it here in its entirety but that would take away the joy of reading it on his blog, and perhaps adding your own thoughts and comments to the story.
If anything, it brought one fact crashing home: That in spite our many shortcomings, people in the GCC still look up to Kuwait as a beacon of progress and enlightenment even if we seem to have recently skidded off the road to progress in so many ways.
And that is why I feel we have such a huge responsibility to take our country back from the forces of darkness who want to drag us back to the Stone Ages, as well as the forces of corruption who are looting and plundering our resources in broad daylight.
Kuwait has so much potential and it's all within reach. It's not just for the sake of our future generations, but for our neighbors as well!
Did that last bit sound patronizing to our neighbors? Of course it did.. I'm Kuwaiti!
