Monday was the National Day of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Even in those long-ago days when we had limited financial resources and little prior experience on the global stage, the kingdom still rose to the challenge and stepped forward to shoulder its responsibilities in both Arab and international affairs.Khaled Almaeena
For Saudi Arabia, many decades of development were telescoped into a few years. The pace of that progress is such as has been known by few nations in history. The story of that exciting journey, catapulting us from one age to another, has been retold countless times and will continue to be told. In retelling the story, we hold on to the roots we spring from, and remind the coming generations that what they have did not just “happen.” Sweat and blood went into building, and hard labor put every brick in place and shouldered each and every boulder and obstacle.
