Johnny’s Life

March 17th, 2010

My new favorite blog, Johnny’s Life, is written by a 10-year-old Lebanese/Swedish/American boy (who also happens to be my, like, 3rd cousin) who goes to the American Community School (ACS) here in Beirut. I have to say – I am impressed almost to tears. Perhaps, at 30, my perspective is shot, but I just do not remember being concerned about the environment or using semi-colons perfectly at 10 years old!


This blog gives us a peek into a a fresh mind belonging to a writer who is bright (he believes his dogs have ‘a right to freedom’), critical (see “Un fair”), descriptive (plenty o’ adjectives and even a keen eye with the camera), sensitive (‘Have you ever experienced the beauty of walking in the beach on the big rocks?’), and culturally aware (‘I am so happy that some people offered to clean the beach in the Cornich in Lebanon for free’). Besides an eagerness to reach out to the world through his blog, he also seems to have a special fondness for hamsters…
