### [[Feelings The Lebanese Long For]] #Lebanon #Emotions Hate them or like them .. [Mayyas](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mayyas) are making us feel things we, as Lebanese youth, have always longed to feel. The same goes for the Lebanese national basketball team [^1]. Not for the performances themselves, but for seeing those crowds waving the Lebanese flag, and having the chance, for at least a few minutes of their lifetimes, to feel like they belong to something that brings pride. This is a feeling that we have been rid of. Cursed, instead, with a modern legacy that brings the shameless to shame. ![[mayyasand basketball.png|400]] <br> Aitwork created with the help of Stable Diffusion <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ZD0doCSkBY8?si=rf0RQ6uGlqpNcj-o" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share" referrerpolicy="strict-origin-when-cross-origin" allowfullscreen></iframe> > [!seealso] Related Thoughts > > Related thoughts will appear here when available.
