Everything I am, Every ounce of good I’ve done in my life is attributed to my parents!  Mom, Dad (Bassima Medawar and Riyad Medawar), You raised us well… Happy 30th anniversary!

Few Relations In Earth Never Die – F ^ R ^ I ^ E ^ N ^ D

“ F “ Few
- “ R “ Relations
- “ I “ In
- “ E “ Earth
- “ N “ Never
- “ D “ Die

-They are Thee who whatever my Weak human Soul Produce their true Friendship Soul Embrace.

-They are the reason I Rejoice the new Moment of Life I gain with each beat of my heart.

-I’m always Half of everything till I’ll be completed by whom I call “friend “.

-GOD granted us Talent to spare but Yet he also created friends to make us show them with dare.

-When God Created forgiveness it was for the sake of “Eternal Friendship” for only them can give it.

-The Sun may light me when It Shine but a friend Light me all the time.

- Friends are the Heart of Life while Love is Part of life.

-Our relations in life are subject to changes from Love to Hate but only their relations have the direction
from Love to Believe.

-In My Moment of “Self Criticism” he is the one to Offer me back my “ Self Believe “.

-A friend is whom I stand next to him as “ME “,no camouflage, no Pretending and NO fear.

-They are Thee who Join our Souls by FUSION and not by Sharing.

-They are those who are not Around but whom are Treasured deep Inside.

-The things you cherish are Soon to be Gone but a friend you cherish will never gone.

-They are Thee who if we did everything or we did nothing will still have it as Best time Together.

-Are Those who Strengthen me with their prayers, Bless me with Their Love and encourage me with
their Hope.

-A 24 Hours action in this Cruel Life might seem Impossible to overcome Unless we are cruising them next to a friend.

-The meaning of My Smile was revealed to me while making my first Friend and since then not shown unless in the smiles of my friends.

-A Friend is Thee who I find him next to me when other chosen to be somewhere else.

-As Human we Tend to Leave our Old things behind but still our sweetest word will ever be : Old Friends we are and still.

Friends are the Book that can never be closed or Finished so ill end up by this Quote who always marked my life

“However rare true love may be, it is less so than true friendship.”
La Rochefoucauld (1665)

UNDP

Dear family

The union of Families in Beirut and under the auspices of Bahiya Hariri met with the UNDP ( UNITED NATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM) to evaluate previous projects and to try to lay down a protocol for future collaboration that aims to support families and empower them to play their supposed roles in their communities.

when this protocol is signed between the UNDP and the union of Families in Beirut, it will be distributed among the various families to read and be discussed.

Each family should have at least 100 registeed members to qualify, and should give the names of two young people who have the time to be active with the UNDP representatives on behalf of the family .

The UNDP will not be handing money over unless the family has a definite project outlined and studied . for example our family needs a place to meet, right now our representatives are meeting in Mrs. Samira Medawar’s house for discussion and planning of activities and gatherings, but to activate the Medawar association properly we need a proper address, so our personal aim is to procure a permenant  address , then when that is ready ,we can ask the UNDP for utilities such as computers  and office equipment etc… this is an example  and we are open for suggestions.

I forgot to mention that three cities are concerned in this , other than Beirut there is Tripoli and Sidon.

we would like to get your feedback either on the official site”medawar.net” or on facebook “medawars all over the world” .

Thank you

family gathering

Dear Medawars

can we start planning for a big family gathering please?

I want to hear your suggestions, you can either post on the website or send to my email:mkm@cyberia.net.lb or Bassem’s or mohammad’s in the contact us section.

This summer Bassem is comming again from the united states for a visit to lebanon, and probably his brother Abed who has been away for nearly thirty years. It would be nice to have this gathering about that time. Ultimately we want all the Medawars to get know each other and to interact one way or the other.

give us your suggestions as to where and when, and raise your hand if you are ready to attend.

Newsletter?

Hello Medawars,

It’s been a while since I wrote on the site, it was partly due to my being busy and partly due to a technical problem with the site. The site is now fixed.

There has been several calls for ideas how to improve the site. Nabil sent me a list that I will post separately. I had posted my own.

How about a year-end newsletter? The newsletter will be both a printed document as well as electronic, on DVD. Topics to include in the newsletter:

- Family happening in 2009: who married whom, who earned what degree, who was born, who passed away, etc.

- Pictures, especially the DVD version, can contain all pictures posted publicly this past year

- Plans for next year?

- Family projects in progress updates

Everyone in the family can participate in material submission. Material must be relevant and tasteful, otherwise there should be no content limits.

Newsletter is open to any medawar (whichever spelling) or relatives to medawar.

So, what do you say?
