As soon as I got home from church this morning, I heard about the wave of suicide bombers and rushed to switch on the computer and start checking on all the Baghdad bloggers. I am glad that you are safe. So glad, very very glad.For anyone who can receive BBC World tv, John Simpson (an enormously experienced and senior journalist who was one of the first to enter Kabul, Afghanistan, after the Taliban retreated) reports for the BBC "Panorama" programme on the state of Iraq on BBC One on BBC World television on Saturday 5 February at 0810, 1210 and 2210 GMT. Rachel, a Brit in London
You know, there are some people in the West who still are spouting on about "Arabs not being ready for Democracy".You've given a lesson to us all.I don't know how things will turn out. But I do know that if enough people do as you do, there's no obstacle you can't overcome. And even a single vote can make a difference.
I knew you would, Ahmed. You are a part of history"Iraq for Iraqis!"Congratulations.
I am very haapy that you voted and are safe. I pray that this is the beginning of a geat new life for all Iraqis. Tell everyone who has voted there that we, the people of America are behind you 100%. My best to you and your family.
Congrats for facing up to the fears. It is because of millions of other Iraqis like you that Iraq is on its way to peace and prosperity.When you get a chance, let us know your thoughts on the voting process, the polling place, etc. Other reports have been saying that polling places in Mosul have been empty.
An Iraqi once said that if we agree to live in fear for just one day, we may live in fear forever. Your courage does honor to all Iraqis.
Never underestimate the power of the act of one person. The actions of the many, individually made, have changed the world. Congratulations and thanks for your courage.
Hurrah for Iraq! I hope the taste of freedom makes you hungry for more.
Congratulations Ahmed!Today, this day, is the first day of a free Iraq.Your Iraq.We all are very proud of you.
Congratulations! My family and many more in the US are praying and rooting for democracy. We don't get covered in the media, but tell other people that we are behind democracy in Iraq 100%.
Way to go, Ahmed ! I want you to know that your posting was on national television this morning in the U.S. as a terrific example of the brave citizens of Iraq as they experience democracy at work today. Keep looking to the future -- the prize is there.
Congratulations uncle, I'm glad you DID..
What a wonderful lesson you have taught your children by your example - to stand up and be counted for what you believe in with courage and integrity. Congratulations to you and Iraq on this historical day. :)Laura
YOU DID! Congratulations! Happy Independence Day!As a sign I read once said, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life!" Glad you made it safe to and from. We were praying for you. Kept a candle lit all night and watched the news just to make sure.Way to go!
You and all those who voted with you have done a brave and wonderful thing. You are helping to make your country a safer and more free place. Congratulations!
Congratulations.You and all your countrymen and women show us you deserve your freedom; whatever will be the election day result, Iraqi people showed their right to be independent. I hope you all achieve the Iraq you want, free, independent, unified, wise.Let me express once more my deep respect.
Congratulations! As it says on the Korean War Memorial in Washington, DC, “Freedom is not free,” and it is true around the world. Thank you for risking everything to stand up to the terrorists who would keep all Iraqis in chains. I commend you and all Iraqis who voted.An American Friend
Dan, whoever you are.. He voted to make sure that we won't have another of Bush's puppets in control.
Hello Ahmed,You are showing solidarity with the Iraqi people. Let's hope the candidates do the same. Iraq first.
Ahmed,Congratulations. I'm so proud of you and your family.Najma,There will be another election by end of the year. So, You still have a chance to make a difference. But, you already did on your wonderful blog.
Fayrouz, still, by the end of the year, I'll be 17, not 18.. And again, I won't be old enough to vote!
Congratulations!!!! You are a supremely brave man and a better man than I am. I am ashamed of myself for taking my voting rights so lightly in the past. Your family, the world, and God will honor and respect you for your bravery and defiance of evil. The people of Iraq will be my new inspiration and reason for voting in the future.
Thank you for your courage for not succumbing to the terrorists' threats. I hope your courage rubs off onsome of your relatives who were somewhat less courageous and were advising you against it (one even publicly). I can understand their fear, and it is easy for me to say from far away; but I hope they rethink their stance, and listen to you more. You are a good role model.
I glad you did, my friend; the resolve of the Iraqi people positively humbles me. I fear the majority of my fellow American citizens would not show such bravery. A first step on the road to democracy. Hopefully, the majority of insurgents will see that their cause is lost and things will slowly get a little more peaceful for you (especially Najma and Mosul).Najma, I'm sorry you won't be old enough to vote. However, don't underestimate your power to influence others in *their* vote. My family had me working the American campaign trail (delivering pamplets, working on mailing lists, etc.) at the age of 8! I'd worked in 5 campaigns before I was allowed to vote!
I stayed up until 2:00 am to watch your progress. The bravery, courage, and determination of the Iraqi people is a message to the world. CONGRATULATIONS on a job well done, you are so deserving of a country in the form and of the vision that you, those who live there, want. You made an act that so many in the western world take for a granted a thing of unbelieveable inspiration!
To vote is to have hope. In spite of all it has been through, Iraq is full of hope and that should give hope to the world.- John - New York City
Najma,Sorry. I always treat you like an adult :-)There will be more elections to come. Next election, if security situation is good enough in Mosul, you can encourage your parents to vote.
Congratulations to you all. It was wonderful to watch. It was great to see so many Iraqis happy, smiling, and celebrating.Now that you have voted, you will have a government that is more legitimate. Your elected leaders can tell us (the coalition) exactly what role you want us to play in helping you. If you don't want us there--tell us to leave. We only want to help and will do whatever you want us to do.
Congradulations on Voting. You have sent a message that is being heard all over the world. You made a very good decision! Bob O'Brien
Good for you. The start of a better future, i hope
Congratulations, Mr. Ahmed, I admire you.I didn't think to check your blog earlier because I have gotten used to your not posting! But this was something worth posting about!Jeff
Ahmed: I am so thrilled to read of your choice. You, along with your fellow Iraqis, have started building the country your children will inherit.Fayrouz: "There will be more elections to come."Amen to that! Najma, from the time you turn 18 until you die may you know nothing but free elections. Your children will only know the violence of this first one from their history books.Yaaaaaaaaaaahoooooooooooooo!
WOOHOO!!! I am so happy that you decided to vote!! When I fell asleep last night the news was talking about the light turnout up to that point...but I also knew it was still early in the day. When I woke up and turned on the TV, my heart was filled with joy because all networks were talking about the huge success.Dave, wanting freedom and democracy does not make you a "Bush Puppet." I don't know what country you live in but do you vote? If you vote, are you a "Bush puppet." Please think about how ridiculus your comment is before you choose to post it...unless you enjoy looking like an idiot!!
Congradulations and Good Luck!
Despite bombs and mortars, despite doubts and unanswered questions, despite all of the uncertainty, people voted and allowed themselves to be marked as having done so. An incredibly moving display of human courage and determination shown on our news, an example of perhaps what we have and take for granted, but I think an example of what some of us have lost, or maybe just forgotten, and needed to be reminded of again.
I am grateful that the violence was kept to a minimum and that the Iraqi people were not dissuaded from their optimisim, hope, and thirst for freedom.Ali at the Free Iraqi Blog wrote yesterday:"Tomorrow I and the Iraqis that are going to vote will rule, not the politicians we're going to vote for, as it's our decision and they'll work for us this time and if we don't like them we'll kick them out! Tomorrow my heart will race my hand to the box. "I think that Ali's heart is very pleased today!You can also find a repository of related Iraqi Election information and news here.Iraq Election Facts, Military Blogs and News on the Ground
Congradulations! I've never read your blog before today but I want to thank you for your decision to vote. I remember last November I stood in line for over an hour outside in the freezing cold and a steady north wind waiting to vote for Kerry. I don't regret it for an instant even though he lost. I realize this is nothing like the hazards you faced but my point is democracy is not a process that comes to an end if you don't get the result you want. If you don't participate in democracy you have no right to complain about the state of affairs. As Iraq moves forward I wish you and your fellow citizens wisdom and success in negotiating the many problems you will face. You have participated in the first step in making that process move forward peacefully. Congradulations again.
Congratulations,You wrestled with your fear and won. That makes you a hero. Never give up, Evil wins when good men do nothing.I have heard on the news that 60-70% voted. That is better than the last US election.You (personally, and nationally) are an inspiration to free people everywhere, even in the US. As another poster said, “If you don't participate in democracy you have no right to complain aboutthe state of affairs. ”. Every election is a success, even if your candidate did not win this time.Again Congratulations on your bravery. I wish you every success personally, and hope the Creatorof the universe protects you from harm.
Ahmed,In the end we must go with what is in our hearts. Those who can stand up and be counted in spite of fear are the ones who are truely free. They are puppets of no one.Najma,It is only because of President Bush that there IS an election. Lynnette in Minnesota
Long Live Iraqi Freedom. Congratulations. This is just the beginning of a very important part of world history. Yes, this is the vote that will be heard around the world. http://membrain.blogspot.com/
Congratulations! One can only hope and pray that this will be a turning point for your country; that our troops who have made it possible may soon come home; that your people may be safe; that a signal will be sent to the terrorists through the massive turnout; and a shock wave will reverbrate throughout the monopolies and dictatorships of the Muslim world: let freedom ring!
I know that you’re pretty proud of yourself today what with the whole world now thinking that you’re a hero even though you were driving us all nuts yesterday with your “To vote or not to Vote”; back and forth, back and forth. Your indecision truly was reminiscent of Hamlet. Never mind. In the end, you did what you knew you had to do even though you were scared to do it. That’s really the reason we all now think that you’re hero. You were scared to do it and you did it anyway. There’s no courage if there’s no fear.
I just want you to know how proud I am of you and your fellow Iraqi citizens. You are a very brave people and its no wonder your country has been around so long. It is people like you Iraqis that are an example to not only other people in the Middle East that want freedom but the whole world. To think you and millions others risked death to help your country. We have so many in the USA that whine and complain about standing in line for a few hours of their life. You have taught us a lesson. I now have no doubt your country will survive and succeed like you have for so many centuries. I hope you are proud. You should be. Congratulations!!
Ahmed, you have my respect, and my well wishes for a safer and better future for yourself and your family. As an American, I do not know if I would have the courage to vote if threatened with violence or death--but YOU DID!
Congratulations, and welcome to the long and occasionally difficult history of popular government.
Bravo ! to do or ___! or to make a change. Guts...rtg
ahmed, jeannette here, god bless. we're all talking about how you all must be the bravest mfs on the planet. take care.
Even us hillbillies in Kentucky (USA) are watching, Ahmed. And we're proud as can be for you.
woooohoooooooooo!!!!! yay!!!!!!!!! congratulations!!!!i have tears in my eyes.
Ahmed, I am crying. What a wonderful way to let us know. Two words. I did. I am so happy for you! Margie, mom from Central New Yrok
I sobbed most of the day today, with the kind of awe that I associate with Budapest 1956, Prague 1968, Poland 1981, and Birmingham, Alabama in 1963. Somone suggested South Africa 1994 or the Berlin Wall. But these are not the same. By the time the wall fell or blacks voted in SA, the threat was over. The sacrifice had been already accomplished. The miracle here was millions of people going despite--or even to spite--the threat of murder and mayhem. It was the act of human courage in the face of terror and tyranny. So Budapest and Prague are better descriptions than Berlin or South Africa. In any case, I cried all day.
From Sacramento, California. My family is behind you 100%. May God Bless Iraq, it's citizens and all those that took part in YOUR liberation. Congratulations!
Congratulations! The courage you and your brethren have shown is amazing. It's too bad they did not dip your middle finger in the ink. Your act of defiance to the dictators and terrorists of the world is a source of joy for people everywhere. The Iraqi people have gained their voice. Let the rest of the world listen.
Congratulations!!You are a hero!You are a REAL man!It took great courage to go vote today.Watching the news and then reading Iraqui blogs, looking at the pictures posted by Iraquis made me cry for joy at the courage and pride of the Iraqui people.Congratulations again!Sincerely,Kathy in Los Angeles, California, USA
YEA!That has GOT to be myfavorite blog post ever!HURRAY FOR THE BRAVE ONE!
I can't get rid of this lump in my throat.Somehow, congratulations doesn't seem adequate.If the reports are accurate, 60-70% of Iraqis chose bravery over cowardice, freedom over fear.Amazing!John
Ahmed - My pregnant wife and I were glued to television all day yesterday as we watched you and your brave countrymen and women go to the polls. I know you are proud and rightfully so. I will someday tell my unborn child of you and your courage when he is old enough to vote here in the US, so that he and his children will never take that privelege for granted. Congratulations and thank you. hayden johnson
Congratulations!Another courageous Iraqi, deserving of much admiration and respect.You are the future of Iraq!
Congratulations Ahmed, I was really happy to see those two little words on your post. Iraq is on it's way to freedom and democracy and no one can stop you now.
way to go! Voting is one of the simple yet powerful ways we average citizens can express ourselves and take control of our destinies.
My name is David and I can only repeat what has already been said because it is all so true. I only repeat because it is so important for you, for us and for the rest of the world. The bravery of the people in Iraq is truly remarkable. It's an example for the rest of the world to follow in the pusuit of freedom. My hope and prayer is that you and all your countrymen will soon know the complete joy of peace, safety and freedom in your own country. Brave people like you are the heart of a free nation. Congratulations
Congratulations!And thank you.Millions of Americans have watched and waited to see what your actions would be. You and your contrymen, that is. You have not disappointed us.If anything, you have shown us up.We have become lazy in our freedom and about the same percentage of us turn out to vote as did the Iraqis. And we had no threat of guns or bombs to keep us away from the polls. You have raised the bar for freedom lovers by your actions. Keep up the great work!to
Way to Go Ahmed!as we say in Hebrew, "Kol Hakavod"- meaning "All of the honor belongs to you"!! You will be able to tell your grandchildren that you were among the first group of Iraqi patriots who created your new country- that you stood up for your country and your family and it made all of the difference in the world. Now we must move forward and finish winning the war for Iraqi independence!Jarred FishmanWashington DC
Ahmed,What happened in Iraq yesterday was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. I am awestruck and humbled by the bravery and dignity of the Iraqi people.
Ahmed, I'm so glad that you voted. And, I'm so happy that million others did too. It was so exciting watching it on TV all day long. I'm really proud of Iraqis and of being one. I also voted with my brother here in Los Angeles.Yours,Waleed Abdulla
Thank you for your courage and thank you for helping to prove that democracy works outside of America! I am so happy to see that the course of events have begun to change in this war. My fiance has been fighting over in Baghdad for sometime now and it is comforting for me to know that he has not been risking his life for nothing! To you and all the Iraqi citizens who voted: Thank you and congratulations!!! You are strong people capable of creating a new start for your country!
Ahmed, I'm so glad. I did a round up of Iraqi posts on the elections and yours is my favorite:Life More Abundant: The Elections - In the Words of Iraq
Thank you all.Drae, You have done a very nice job in collecting all those posts in one. It sums it all.
<>Congratulations Ahmed, I'm glad you did what you did. Could not fall asleep until I started seeing on the internet that thousands of people and many women were voting all over the place! I will never forget this....many tears of joy.Aasha Al-Iraq.<>
Well Ahmed,i'm sure you realize that the link Drae has put up is a very biased and selective look at the elections.The Bloody Charade Of The Iraq ElectionBaghdad - In Baghdad on Saturday they were supposed to be preparing for an election. But they were preparing for war. The American Bradley armoured vehicles on the streets, the United States foot patrols, the old Russian personnel carriers that Saddam Hussein bought on the cheap from the Soviet Union - now dressed up in the dull camouflage paint of the new Iraqi army - the hooded and masked policemen: they do not look like the prelude to an experiment in democracy. They are all waiting for the rivers of blood of which insurgents have warned. But there will be democracy in Iraq. The mortars rained down yesterday morning on the Green Zone where the US and British embassies are located, a "thumpety-thump-thump" that brought the American Apache choppers over the surrounding highways in less than 30 seconds - but the insurgents had disappeared. Then a fierce gun battle broke out in the very centre of Baghdad between Americans and insurgents. Too late again. The gunmen got away. Fantasy attacks before a fantasy election. Many Iraqis do not know the names of the candidates, let alone their policies. But there will be democracy in Iraq. The media boys and girls will be expected to play along with this. "Transition of power", says the hourly logo on CNN's live coverage of the election, though the poll is for a parliament to write a constitution, and the men who will form a majority within it will have no power. They have no control over their own oil, no authority over the streets of Baghdad, let alone the rest of the country, no workable army or loyal police force. Their only power is that of the American military and its 150 000 soldiers whom we could all see on the main intersections of Baghdad yesterday. The big television networks have been given a list of five polling stations where they will be "allowed" to film. Close inspection of the list shows that four of the five are in Shi'ite Muslim areas - where the polling will probably be high - and one in an upmarket Sunni area, where it will be moderate. The majority Shi'as, oppressed under Hussein, are expected to take a majority in the polling at the expense of the formerly dominant Sunnis. Every working-class Sunni polling station will be out of bounds to the press. I wonder if the television lads will tell us that today when they show voters "flocking" to the polls. In the Karada district, we found three truckloads of youths on Saturday, all brandishing Iraqi flags, all - like the unemployed who have been sticking posters to Baghdad's walls - paid by the government to "advertise" the election. And there was a cameraman from Iraqi state television, of course, which is controlled by Iyad Allawi's "interim" government. The "real" story is outside Baghdad, in the tens of thousands of square kilometres outside the government's control and beyond the sight of independent journalists, especially in the four Sunni Muslim provinces which are at the heart of Iraq's insurrection. Right up to the election hour, US jets were continuing to bomb "terrorist targets", the latest in the city of Ramadi, which - although US President George Bush and Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair do not say so - is now in the hands of the insurgents as surely as Fallujah was before the Americans destroyed it. Every month since Allawi, the former CIA agent, was appointed premier, American air strikes on Iraq have been increasing exponentially. There are no "embedded" reporters on the giant American air base at Qatar or aboard the US carriers in the Gulf from which these ever increasing and ever more lethal sorties are being flown. They go unrecorded, unreported, part of the "fantasy" war which is all too real to the victims but hidden from us journalists. The reality is that much of Iraq has become a free-fire zone (for reference, see under "Vietnam") and the Americans are conducting this secret war as efficiently and as ruthlessly as they conducted their earlier bombing campaign against Iraq between 1991 and 2003, an air raid a day, or two raids, or three. Then they were attacking Hussein's "military targets" in Iraq. Now they are attacking "foreign terrorist targets" or "anti-Iraqi forces": I especially like this one, since the foreigners involved in this violence happen in reality to be Americans who are mostly attacking Iraqis. Yes, I know how it's all going to be played out. Iraqis bravely vote despite the bloodcurdling threats of the enemies of democracy. At last, the US and British policies have reached fruition. A real and functioning democracy will be in place so the occupiers can leave soon. Or next year. Or in a decade or so. Merely to hold these elections - an act of folly in the eyes of so many Iraqis - will be a "success". The Shi'as will vote en masse, the Sunnis will largely abstain. Shi'a Muslim power will be enshrined for the first time in an Arab country. And then the manipulation will begin and the claims of fraud and the admissions that the elections might be "flawed" in some areas. But we'll go on saying "democracy" and "freedom" over and over again, the insurgency will continue and grow more violent, and the Iraqis will go on dying. But there will be democracy in Iraq.Robert Fisk | February 2 2005
"Free" Iraqis Still Waiting for the Wind of Change"The only decent food we get nowadays is at funerals."Robert Fisk02/01/05 "The Independent" -- Baghdad. The gale tore into Baghdad yesterday, stripping the walls of election posters, sending miniature whirlwinds between the shuttered shops of Rashid Street, giving new meaning to the black hoods and masks worn by the policemen at Tahrir Square. Tahrir--"independence"--is a word which a lot of people voted for on Sunday; not for "democracy" as the Western media would have it, but for freedom; freedom to speak, freedom to vote, freedom from the Americans. They were in Baghdad, too, yesterday, driving their Humvees through Karada, circling the city in their Apaches and their little bee-like Sioux spotter helicopters. For days we will have to wait for the election results. A spokesman for the Shia Muslim Iraqi National Alliance is quoted in The New York Times as saying that the Americans and British say his party might have won more than 50 per cent of the vote--the Shia Republic has come of age!--and it's all the talk of Baghdad when the people hear it in Arabic on their own networks from the Gulf. But how could the Americans know now that the INA has won more than half the votes? At the end of Jumhuriya Street, a squad of cops in plain clothes stands on a pick-up truck, rifles pointing at us, some of them hooded. At midday, it's still supposed to be the curfew. The houses are boarded up, the shops closed. It's as if, after voting, the Shias are waiting for the political equivalent of a tsunami punishment, the Sunnis merely biding their time. The shish kebab in my least-favourite Baghdad restaurant tastes like cardboard. No wonder my friend Haidar says that the only decent food we get nowadays is at funerals. In Nidhal Street, I find a "haj" [pilgrimage] bus trailing our car. It has an Iraqi flag on the front and its destination, Mecca, written in bold black paint across a banner on the front. Held up by the election curfews, the pilgrims were off on their long drive south. Against this insurgency, this election, the eternal, hopeless optimism of Messrs Bush and Blair, the much more eternal ritual of Muslim faith and prayer goes on. My Lebanese travel agent was on the haj and I called him from Baghdad to ensure he was safely home--pilgrims have a disturbing habit of being crushed to death--and I realised at once what it must be like for Iraqis, trapped in their country, to make a call abroad. Only a few days in the claustrophobia of Baghdad and an international call is like an oxygen bottle. Yes, says Ahmed, the weather in Beirut is cold, there is snow on the mountains, my cleaning lady has closed the shutters and he's safe back from the haj. The television flickers in my room. The ex-CIA man and "interim" Prime Minister, Iyad Allawi,--possibly the next "interim" Prime Minister as well--is telling Iraqis that their vote on Sunday means that "the terrorists have been defeated". Flak jackets on, I say to myself. Why do these people--the British were the same in Northern Ireland--invite further attack? This is the same Allawi who, from his bunker in the "Green Zone", instructed his vulnerable people to vote two days ago. More and more, we feel this vast, cosmic distance between real Iraq and the fantasy Iraq of Washington and London. I watch Blair talking nervously, his body language defensive, his eyes spiritual, telling us what a stupendous success the election has been. But he chose to keep the extent of the extent of the RAF Hercules tragedy secret from his people when he spoke on Sunday night. So why the surprise when the Americans and British still keep secret the number of Iraqis who are killed here every day? Twice in the morning, there are huge explosions which roar over Baghdad. I hear a gun battle near Sadr City. But the local Iraqi radio carries no explanation of this. At mid-morning, two police cars overtake me, sirens squealing, Kalashnikovs waving out the windows at motorists, the cops mouthing oaths at anyone who blocks their way. No reason again. They are the real world, hooded and unidentifiable. Fast and stirring dust. Like the wind.
What's that, you say?"The mortars rained down yesterday morning on the Green Zone where the US and British embassies are located, a "thumpety-thump-thump" that brought the American Apache choppers over the surrounding highways in less than 30 seconds - but the insurgents had disappeared. "NOT so! They did NOT disappear. I saw them, we all saw them on the satellite. We saw all seven of them run like little girls, scared to death into a near by house where the good guys came a hauled their butts away! They got the bad guys! And, if you're a bad guy, we'll get you too!You write long letters of lies. Shame on you!
The "idiotarian of the year" award is nicknamed the "Fiskie", for Robert Fisk. The man is an idiot. Don't take anything he says seriously.
I am very happy that you voted! I was watching the election coverage all day and almost all night!
Fisk, no less! A good guide to distortion and bullfaeces. His name will live on; to be "Fisked" is to have your assertions proven unsupported and grotesquely biased.I'll repeat the science link I tacked on to the end of the previous post's comments: Positive Emotions Cut Bias. Sneering and pessimism and cynicism actively reduce ability to comprehend.
Please don't stop blogging because of a few idiots who commented on your last post. The rest of us love to read yours and other Iraqi blogs, and we wish you only peace.
hello ahmed, (proud to be a tennessee hillbilly). your musings remind me of kahil gibran. LET FREEDOM RING.....
Do you really think the vote was legit? Give me a break! Why did it take two weeks to count the votes? Why were Allawi and others in the GC telling the press that "60% of Iraqi's voted" only one day after the polls closed? Why did US and Mexican officials count the vote and not Iraqi's? The Iraqi election was a farce. You had people all over the world voting...not just Iraqi's. To claim that eight million Iraqi's voted is a lie. That does not include all the people who voted all over the rest of the world. The US, Europe, Australia, etc. Votes that took place in only US approved areas.
You may hear and think many things about us here in America. Some say that we went to Iraq because of oil. That is rediculous with the money we have spent we could drill for oil all over the world. Is oil worth the lives of our people--NO. Not many people know this but the US gets most of its oil from Canada. So should we start warring with Canada? We want to get out of Iraq too but know that most of us want freedom and a goodlife for the Iraqis.We are so very sad about the terrible violence you have suffered, especially your beautiful children. At the time of your elections many of us had tears in their eyes. Each Sunday at church, we pray for peace and the Iraqi people. Prayer is the main thing that will stop the madness. May God help and bless Iraq and its people.
