The Beirut Blast is indeed a horrible disaster to have happened to humanity. As Lebanon is already going through an economic crisis, this blast will just add to the burden. We feel grieved at the widespread human suffering and mourn the loss of innocent lives. Here’s hoping 2020, and the years to come, can have a little bit of mercy on us.
