Last year, we lit the candle marking the 100th anniversary of our beloved homeland in the modern time, which is the era of founding, construction, and enhancement while joining the developed, advanced and democratic countries. It is Jordan, whose honorable name is associated with the purest river and the holiest soil in human history. Of these hundred years, holy Jordan lights its 76th candle marking its independence and freedom, as well as the source of its unlimited benevolence. We are all proud of the wise management that God Almighty has bestowed on this country, on its ship that is moving at a steady pace, as well as on the legitimate and firm sails that proceed towards the port of safety.
The Jordanian ship may be exposed to violent storms from various directions, but the skilled captain is the one who steers it with wisdom, as well as with the spirit of honesty and high responsibility so that the country would remain a model in the cohesion of people and in close contact with their leadership. The past years were definitely not easy for our dear country, as sometimes some attempts emerge designed to shake confidence and to erect walls instead of building bridges.
