writing about The Jordanian Dream the other day, and then watching the Super Star (Arabic Pop Idol) episode last sunday made me realize how much people do grab any single chance of hope to make a better life out of theirs.
I have mixed feelings regarding the show. While I did enjoy my time laughing at those poor souls who made fool out of themselves in public for the sheer possibility of getting a chance of a better life, I did as well felt bad and even slight anger towards the jury committee of the show for their rude remarks and making fun of the unqualified participants.
Thinking about it, I don’t know whether the people behind such a show is doing a good job of providing some chances for people to achieve their dreams, or they are playing on the misfortune of poor people for the sake of making money.
It strike me to realize how much those poor souls are willing to play the clown role for us in order to get out of their misrable conditions.
In the other hand, the happiness you see on the faces of the qualified participants do make a balance of the saddness of those who didn’t make it.
I am happy to see people dream. Without hope they would just die.
