She couldn’t take the pressure of failing the state “Brevet” exam, so she threw herself off the sixth floor, fracturing her teenage body which may or may not heal. As she lies between life and death, many other students celebrate what they believe is succeeding the hardest trial in their lives… yet. Cannon like fireworks have been blasting our Lebanese nights since the release of the results, with parents rushing to spend hefty amounts of cash to boast their children’s achievements to the aching ears of others. This girl’s parents, however, will only be reciting prayers perhaps so that their child comes out of the dark grip of death. The pressure placed upon kids these days with the state exams has become a tad overdone. Im not sure where the government stands on such incidents, if it has any stance at all.
