The family was forced to live with relatives for a while prior to Kamila's decision to immigrate following in suit to Gibran's uncle who immigrated to the United States earlier. In , the father was released his Arabic roots and the tenuous nature of his marriage to Kamila made him feel uncertain about immigration so he remained in Lebanon.
At the age of ten, Gibran fell off a cliff, injuring his left shoulder, which seemed to remain weak for the rest of his life. The method of healing was quite interesting: His dislocated shoulder was strapped to a cross for 40 days apprently in symbolic method of healing combining Christ's wanderings in the wilderness and his torment upon the cross. This incident was naturally deeply ingrained into Gibran's consciousness.
The Gibrans settled in the second largest Syrian community in the U. Like many immigrant communities, they settled among people who spoke their dominant language of Lebanon.
South End was filled with Arab speakers who shared Arab customs which did not include suicide bombers at that time as the majority of the community were Christians which is the less militant part of the Chrislamic faith.

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
Thus from the roots of the Cedars of Lebanon, the wonderful New Thought teacher Khalil Gibran grew into a wonderful mystic who produced essays, novels, poems and art. AND he said to himself: Shall the day of parting be the day of gathering?
And shall it be said that my eve was in truth my dawn? And what shall I give unto him who has left his slough in midfurrow, or to him who has stopped the wheel of his winepress? Shall my heart become a tree heavy—laden with fruit that I may gather and give unto them?
And shall my desires flow like a fountain that I may fill their cups?
Am I a harp that the hand of the mighty may touch me, or a flute that his breath may pass through me? A seeker of silences am I, and what treasure have I found in silences that I may dispense with confidence?
If this is my day of harvest, in what fields have I sowed the seed, and in what unremembered seasons? If this indeed be the hour in which I lift up my lantern, it is not my flame that shall burn therein.

Empty and dark shall I raise my lantern, And the guardian of the night shall fill it with oil and he shall light it also. THESE things he said in words. But much in his heart remained unsaid.
For he himself could not speak his deeper secret. AND when he entered into the city all the people came to meet him, and they were crying out to him as with one voice.
And the elders of the city stood forth and said: Go not yet away from us. A noontide have you been in our twilight, and your youth has given us dreams to dream.
No stranger are you among us, nor a guest, but our son and our dearly beloved. Suffer not yet our eyes to hunger for your face. Retrieved from " https: The Prophet book.
