Who said "Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country"? Are you seriously asking that question? It was JFK, during his inauguration speech as US president. WRONG! The answer is Lebanese poet-artist-writer Khalil Gibran. Gibran was born in Lebanon on January 6th, 1883 and has since become the 3rd best selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu* To honor Gibran and his work, Google has dedicated their January 6th 2011 Doodle to him, not on google.com.lb, but on google.com, a real honor for every Lebanese. You can find the picture of the Doodle below and more information on Gibran via the wikipedia link.
