I am human. My name is Diana.
I was born in the beautiful, crazy city of Beirut in 1972. I was lucky to grow up between orient and occident. Between war and peace as long as I remember.
We use seven languages to communicate in our international patchwork familiy. My father is Lebanese and shows us how to grow old becoming kinder and wiser, my mother was German with a great love for Asian countries and cultures. I went to French schools with schoolmates from more than 40 different countries and my friends and family still live all over the world.
My parents‘ home was always open for all these wonderful people and so is mine now. I want my children to learn about the way other Humans live, love and pray. Or how and what they eat and what makes them happy. I want us, as a family, to be compassionate and not judgemental. I want myself to be the best human I can and always remember to be grateful for my heritage.
I have told you my story. What is yours?

What a beautiful story! You should publish an anthology about all your human stories.
