He said he will be back...
My new mentor, a very respectable member of the society, and a college professor. He has such an amazing personality. He was such a dreamer, he is from middle eastern origins and he started telling me how eager he was to graduate and go back home to serve his nation
That was 28 years ago.
I can't help but wonder, what is it about our middle eastern countries that drives people out like that!
It took only few brushes with the authorities, the social norms, the prejudgement of society and family, and most if not all decide to flee
Frustration after frustration, starting from income levels to mass social discontent to more sinister corrupt government official abusing their powers and their authority.
All of this boils down to one simple question for me, am I going to end up like that?!
