With the purpose of reminding the Haigazian community of what had taken place 39 years ago on April 13th, 1975, Haigazian University's Peace Building Committee held an event on Monday, April 14th 2014, to commemorate the civil war. The event took place at the auditorium, welcoming talented actor and script-writer George Khabbaz, as an esteemed guest speaker to share his understanding of "National Unity" to the students.
Khabbaz stated, "achieving National Unity and enhancing the state of Lebanon first starts with ones-self. Later, as we get older and have children, it is our responsibility to raise our children without advocating sectarianism, but promote positive thinking and a positive attitude.” Furthermore, Khabbaz encouraged students to stay and work in Lebanon.
As the event came to an end, an interactive Q&A session was held, followed by signing a promise on the "One Lebanon Map" displayed on campus.
Students left the auditorium with smiles on their faces, feeling more hopeful that a better future lies ahead.
