The truth is this country's greatest strength has always been the resilience and optimism of its people, as was demonstrated for the world to see with tens of thousands of people flocking to Nijmeh Square in Downtown Beirut to partake in a New Year's Eve jubilee welcoming 2019 .The world and life can fling any number of catastrophes at this country, but in the end, it is always the sense of hope and goodwill that prevails.As New Year's Eve festivities showed, nothing can break the spirit of these remarkable people, and that is why Lebanon will always endure as beacon of hope.
