Touched by biblical verses read inside the chapel, Ajwad Imad el Hashem and his friends vowed to fulfill a dream bringing a cedar tree from Lebanon to the center of the USA. The love for Lebanon, like this cedar, is eternal. To every Lebanese emigrant reading this, stay true to the cedar.
Stay true to your first love - Lebanon.
