View this post on Instagram A post shared by The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) Lebanon is in national mourning for three days, officially, but the grief and sorrow will take long to heal. Beirut, the capital that has always refused to die, has just taken a massive blow. And she will rise again, like she always did, from amid the rumbles and the ashes, like the Phoenix she has always been. Because Beirut, sit el-douniyah, is the city that refuses to die.
