Back to School in Iraq

I've been following the overhaul of Iraq's schools: Iraqi Schools Expelling 'Beloved Saddam'. Fascinating to think of the turmoil, both external and internal. Imagine being a seven-year-old asked to read - in every lesson - about Saddam Hussein. Then imagine only a year later, after your country gets bombed and occupied, being asked to rip those very references to Saddam out of your books. I am so thankful to have grown up in a country as stable and prosperous as the United States.
