I found this blog by way of Miraj' blog, Baghdad Chronicles
. Sometimes, you can say something till you're blue in the face when it comes to trying to get people to understand what it's like, living in Iraq as an Iraqi, but then, there's hopefully another strategy a la House (yes, saw the two re-runs back to back, the only show on Fox, the unofficial government mouthpiece I'll promote) that says, let's just rub their faces in it. Well, I'll just do a 'gentle rub' and ask you to take a look at a day in the life of..Sunshine. She's a 14 yr old Iraqi teenage girl and a self described 'optimist' as she has decided how to cope with her life. So ladies and gentleman, aside from Miraj' blog, I invite you to click and read, so apropos...livestrong.blogspot.com
Hope you exams went well.
Miraj, I hope that there are glimpses of something humane that will give you the strength you need to keep your spirit as much intact as you can. Salam!
