inspiration for the book "Who Am I" came to Mrs Yasma Fuleihan
after the horrific events of the 2006 summer war in Lebanon. Mrs
Fuleihan was concerned for the welfare of all those suffering the
terrible consequences of the bombing campaign, but she was particularly
saddened and outraged by the aggression and violence being perpetrated
upon the innocent children.
She felt that she had wisdom to share with these children, in much the
same way the she strives to teach her own children, who are the
collateral victims of violence through their father's tragic death, that
no matter what we have suffered through, we must not let it draw us into
hatred and vengeance.
"Who am I?" promotes an awareness of self within the child through
personal examination and reflection. Delivering a message of peace and
tolerance, and allowing the young reader to design their own vision of
their future, Yasma Fuleihan hopes this book will empower children to
aspire to live a life without hatred.
All proceeds from the sale of the book go directly to the Basil Fuleihan
Foundation. "WHO AM I" will retail within Europe for 10 euros. The book is available in English or French (under
the title "Qui Suis-je"), and will also be available in bookstores
