Can politicians fast?

With this season of fasting, in Lebanon (I think abroad it is exercised differently), people fast not just 12 hours per day by not eating, or from dairy products and meat, moreover they actually choose something they really love (i.e. Chocolate, Smoking, Pepsi...) and they refrain from eating/drinking/smoking it for the whole 50 days.

Now I was wondering, as our politicians love being unprofessional, unforgiving, full of hatred, arguing with no basis for anything useful, ruining the country, etc... So you get the idea! Can't they fast and stop doing what they love for 50 days? Please! Pretty Please!

  1. Hi Liliane, I hope this note finds you happy and healthy. I continue to love what you do with your blog and I hope you continue the great work.

    We Catholics also fast the same way by giving up something we really love until the day of Easter. A Sacrifice if you will. We are also not supposed to eat any meat each Friday for this same period.

    I also wanted to share this song with everyone. I think you will like it. I love it and love the words.

    Sending many smiles from Canada.

    I love this song ya Marianna, it definitely touches a nerve... :/
    And same here, many persons fast from any product that comes from animals, like even mayonnaise, biscuits, and of course meat. Also, thank you for your encouraging words :)
