Anniversaries are usually there not only to remember and celebrate but also to take some minutes and reflect on what has been achieved, what has been missed and what has gone wrong. Many Algerian bloggers took the opportunity of this day to talk of the wrong-doings of our rulers, the issues our country still faces and the position Algeria holds in the world (which would not be deserved); and I agree with most of them. But, like last year, I am just going to remember and celebrate so I am sharing this song by the legendary Kabyle singer Cherif Kheddam (wiki link in Kabyle). It is titled “Algeria will heal inshAllah” and conveys a message of hope.
Happy Independence Day to Algeria and to all my compatriots.
I will of course switch back to normal mode starting from tomorrow 🙂
الله يرحم الشهداء
