|Man in a Desert||
Najla Hariri is a woman who possesses two driver's licenses: one issued by Lebanon's Ministry of Interior and the other by Egypt's. You can add a third if you want to count in an international license. But since she is a Saudi Arabian citizen she cannot drive in her country's cities. But she does anyway! You can read more about this determined woman's drive here.
She's not a rebellious teen. Rather, she's a mother in her 40s who believes that "enough is enough". And how right she is. I do not understand how a female doctor, for example, can be entrusted to save a human being's life but not be allowed to drive a car.
So to Najla Hariri and all the other Najlas, we respect you, we believe in you and I salute you.
A man on a long journey through a perpetual desert.
