If there's anything I learned while living in Kuwait, it's that change doesn't happen overnight. Or, even over decades. Sometimes it takes action outside of their control to force that change. Which is exactly what the Philippines has done; forced change. Bravo!
"Kuwait will always be a second home for me and will always have a special place in my heart. But serious changes need to take place in terms of human rights and animal rights. When an entire country can have a reputation for being cruel to people and animals, something is fundamentally wrong.
Fortunately, among some of the worst, are some of the best. There are people who step up and take on the issues head-on. They work tirelessly to make changes in Kuwait which is anything but easy.
Yeah, it's a little unfortunate someone has to write an op-ed telling people to be kind to those of different nationalities, but I applaud her for doing so."
From the Arab Times today, "Kuwait Expresses Regret, Bewilderment...." Oh yes. It is shocking and surprising. Emmmm.....
Well, Safa, you should be really happy about this! Mabrook, boyfriend! You wanted more expats out of the country and now you can wash your own dishes and clean your own toilets. I'm so happy for your win.
