BAJD: Supporting our homegrown efforts

    Rated 4.7/5 stars (92 votes cast)

    For a small country of 6 million people. Jordan doesn't fall short in creativity, having broad and very bold visions. Striving to take a place among the stars in a sky that is becoming exceedingly crowded.

    It would have been a bit easier to achieve these bold vision had we -as Jordanians- supported one another, and initiatives regardless of how or who is taking the time and effort to do something that helps this country.

    In fact, if you're Jordanian, you're most likely to find more acceptance and appeal outside Jordan than inside it. With the exception of the Royal family which is mostly supported unconditionally. Possibly for very good reasons (like fear or hypocrisy), but never the less supported by the majority.

    Jordanians are not the exception here, but from my personal experience, Jordanians are the most fierce when it comes to opposition of anything -others- come up with. As if the most sticky thought in our mind is "If we didn't come up with it, it's worthless".

    Many Jordanians also hold grudges forever. It doesn't matter how long back you crossed them, or simply disagreed with them. The end result is the same. You will never, EVER, be welcome. The Egyptian term "Ma ma7abba ella min ba3d 3adawa" (loosely, Every loving relationship came after being enemies). But the opposite is true, may enemies were once good friends.

    Of course, all of these and more hurt us all as a community, not only as individuals. Because in this connected world, we all need each other. Wouldn't it be fantastic if the greatest powers joined forces against poverty? If all the Armies of the world joined forces to plant a forest? Or feed the hungry? Or perhaps wave some paper fans to help with global warming? I bet you a 100 million soldiers could do a lot of good. Or harm...

    There aren't two people on the face of this planet that never disagree. In fact, someone who never disagrees with you, is probably being hypocritical, and lying to your face.

    It's blog about Jordan day, a time to take a few minutes, out of your busy schedule -saving the world- to give Jordan, the country that is as unlikely to exist as the universe itself. Yet, it's there, and it's loved. And despite all the dark disadvantages, and horrible challenges, Jordan and Jordanians press on, and take on major challenges, to displace a spot among the stars.

    So start pushing... And love one another, it's the least we can do. We're all in this together and we'll all suffer together, we'll all share the same future. So let's be unified in building it, and you get to paint your own part of it, whatever color you like.

    Happy Blog about Jordan day

    PS: Sorry for the extremely localized post

    There is no shame in having it localized. In fact your distress reverberates mostly everywhere across the Levant, and perhaps other places too. Local stories are global ones.

    People often forget that "global" is the result from individual "locals". Just as each member of the family, while each to their own, contribute to the family as a whole, similarly a family/individual to community, community to society, society to provinces, to countries, to continents, to the whole planet.

    You mentioned something important - taking time off our busy schedule - in fact when I first read it, I read it "lousy schedule". It reflects something, don't you think?

    If we all gather all of these emotions and efforts to improve a small part of the basics things which makes us all suffer, we may improve our community, and we correct the path for the next generation.
    Because as you said it's our present and our future after all.
    Thanks

    I think all organizations (and peoples) suffer from "Not Invented Here" syndrome.
