Lebanon can be difficult and, at times, violent. But we choose to be witnesses to the hidden heroes working here. Otherwise, we’d miss the greatest opportunity of all: to stand for something more than the sum of our parts.

This week a talk from TEDxBeirut on the beauty of the Arabic language became the first talk in Arabic to be featured on TED.com. Above — a part of a note from the organizers of TEDxBeirut on why holding the event means so much to them and their community.
