The current generation are mostly young imports or born in Australia, and i'd like to think give a crap about their homeland and roots. The point i'm trying to make is that judging from this forum and the people i know, we're an educated bunch who are quite passionate about Lebanon and Jieh and would like to pass on a bit of it to our own kids. When you hear the older generation talking about sale of property whether it be their own or someone elses, i'd like the fellow jieh people to be made available the details of sale to the younger bunch. This gives this generation the opportunity to own a part of their heritage.
Get people interested. Send out letters with the details.
Just quickly, i'm aware that many just think it's too hard and can't be bothered with the paperwork, but it's not complicated, you just need the proper contacts. Yes, i have purchased a property in Lebanon before. It's the best feeling knowing that you are tied to such a unique, gorgeous country.
Please respond with your thoughts, i want to know if anyone else thinks this is important. Trying to preserve a community spirit long after our older generation is gone is a tribute.
