Independence Day

It has been 60 years now.

It has been 60 years since this country took its first step towards being a free country; although it may not seems like it has achieved it all.

This is the first time in Jordan that we celebrate independence in a such a way. This day used to be just a holiday without any interest from anybody.

What is for granted that people in Jordan now are feeling more patriotic; maybe because recently we have few things to be proud of.
We used to be losers in everything.

Independence in Jordan was achieved without any big sacrifices, so nobody used to feel anything in this day.

I think that some small things have made us love Jordan more, things like winning football games or winning a singing contest, it may seems that these things are stupid, but what I have seen that people in Jordan and it maybe for the first time stood together at these two special moments.

The stupid thing that happened last November in Jordan made it clear that people really love this country.

Despite that Jordan doesn't have any resources that people can live from, and that it may have given nothing to the people but there is this mysterious bond that makes us love this country whatsoever.

Jordan is something inexplicable.
It is enigmatic.

Hoping that next year our brothers in Palestine and Iraq will gain their freedom and independence.

Can you give some examples please I cant think of any, while on the other hand you have plenty of things to be ashamed of in Jordan.

" there is this mysterious bond that make us love this country whatsoever"
Do you live in this world!!! almost nobody likes jordan, and those who claim to like it they are more than willing to leave whenever they get a chance, what you call loving jordan is no more than hypocrisy few people in jordan practice, many others declare their hatred to jordan.

"Jordan is something inexplicable"
I cannot agree more.

"Hoping that next year our brothers in Palestine and Iraq will gain their freedom and independence."
jordanians worry about the whole world while forgetting themselves

Man I have already given some examples, it might seems that these are stupid examples, but at least now we have something, in the past days we almost had nothing.

Even those who want to leave Jordan can not deny that they love it man.

That is the best about Jordanians; although we live in a small country but we really care about everybody else and believe that we can make a change.
