A President’s Visit

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012 was the most unusual day I have ever witnessed in my University, Haigazian.

On that day, everyone was waiting for the Armenian President to pay the University a visit, which will mean a lot for some of my Armenian friends. The University flags were spread on each side of the street between the Mugar & Mehagian buildings. Moreover a big banner was placed at the University’s door showing the Lebanese & Armenian flags together in a beautiful harmony.

At the doors, there was an inspection machine, where people place their bags before they enter the campus, two men from the Lebanese Army, a whole lot of bodyguards, and a trained dog! I was surprised to see my small, modest university looking like that, I couldn’t help but updating my Facebook status saying: “Each time I pass by the bodyguards spread around the univ today, I almost burst with laughter, thinking I’m inside a James Bond Movie xD! — at Haigazian University”.

The classes were stopped at 11:30, and everybody, from faculty to students, went down to campus waiting the President to arrive.

And there he was! (Check him out in this video that I shot).

The rest is known by the ones who attended his speech in Church Hall.

So if you go ahead and ask me for any last words about this day, I would say:” My country is small in space, but always big in heart…Welcome to Lebanon!”.
