Super Star Rocks At Schools

“The Super Star Student’s Show that Rocked the school months ago is NOW Back!”
“Be sure not to miss it”
that’s what I’ve been told by one of the teenagers that is participating in the Super Star performance.

I remembered two famous quotes I've recently read; “The power to control the flow of information is the power to control the way people think”. Oliver Stone
“Sometime during the next decade, we may all think alike and act alike and not even know that we had a choice.” Nola Bowie

Most people think that TV Shows have a negative impact on the society, they may also contribute to social problems like violence, aggressiveness and decline of manners and family values.

Super Star, and some other live TV Shows like Star Academy had a big impact on our Society, like for exampl; their logos and names were printed on T-shirts, bags, shoes, trousers, and even on underwear, they also became the most popular topic among teenagers and older people too.

New artists are being born everyday with the new trend which depends only on cheapness, nothingness, indecency and impudicity. However, watch out your kids, they are the main targeted perfect receivers, and thus unfortunately we have to expect hundreds of Haifa Wahbi, Dana, Maria, Rouby and others and others.

Martyrdom Day

Two verses from the Holy Quran are engraved On the Unknown Soldier Monument located on Qassiun mount say;
Think not of those who are slain in Allah's Way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the Presence of their Lord; They rejoice in the Bounty provided by Allah: and with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (Martyrs) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve." [3:169-170].

Ugly concrete dirty buildings, built-up narrow streets, randomness, chaos, nothing is symmetrical even in the same one building, order does not exist, gardens and parks are seldom to spot, Damascus from Qassioun Mountain looks like a jungle made of concrete. Alas, it is not beautiful.
I suggest sentences like “ Damascus is located in the middle of an oasis called el-Ghouta” or “Damascus is surrounded by a green bracelet called el-Ghouta (which was once defined as a small paradise on earth)”, should be omitted, edited and replaced by sentences such as “ Damascus is surrounded by ugliness, by unsightly outskirts, by desert, by pollution… Damascus should be saved"
