Those who know Homs must have noticed that it is an old historical city and has a moderate climate. It connects Damascus, the capital of the South, and Aleppo, the capital of the North. Homs is connecting the sea from the west with Palmyra and Al-Sham desert from the east, that created the mild climate which the city is known for. According to some historians, this mild climate may have influenced the people of Homs to be moderate and humour. These characteristics have contributed to the Syrian culture. In recent years, it has been named the capital of the revolution, but who ever knows Homs will say it is the heart of Syria. "Echo Of Homs" is just an attempt to express love for Homs.
