Ameen Rihani Organization
"For most of the world, there's no greater symbol of America than the Statue of Liberty. It has been an inspiration to generations of immigrants. One of these immigrants was a poet-writer named Ameen Rihani. Gazing at her lamp held high, he wondered whether her sister might be erected in the lands of his Arab forefathers. Here is how he put it: "When will you turn your face toward the East, oh Liberty?""

Ameen Rihani spent most of his life living in Lebanon and the U.S. He made his native Lebanon his home and lived there for nearly half of his life. Aside from his trips to Europe and the Middle East, he often traveled to New York and made Manhattan his second home during the remainder of his years.
