I rolled over and looked out the window and all I had to fear were torrential rains. I didn't have to worry about getting shot by a camouflaged stranger when I left my home, nor did I dread going to the city for fear of the spreading of biological warfare. All I had to worry about was what to wear now that it wouldn't be sunny and dry enough to wear my Birkenstocks to school today.
God, what a sheltered and protected life I live. How selfish we are and how much do we take for granted.
Right now I'm wrestling with my beliefs. But no matter what they are, I pray that the God that many Iraqis believe in will save them from what America is doing to them.
