Thanks for this. You always find the human context.

I must say that your photo makes you seem like the most unlikely war correspondent I have ever seen--especially the lovely smile and the merriment in your eyes.

Just kidding! Nice to see your blog... great things here.

It is a well-writen story that moves to compassion. It is time that peace return to Iraq with full force. I wish I could help the Iraqis somehow, but how can I, except by writing. The Shiites should not fight each other. Al-Sadr tels them "to defend themselves with arms." Al-Sadr has no compassion for the mothers losing their children! Iraq needs new leaders that do not see Quran as a chance to kill and maim! Iraq needs a new Islam of Allah the Compassionate!
