May peace be all over the world.......

Hello all I hope you enjoyed Christmas, and had memorable day with your families, I really wanted my Iraqi Christian friends to enjoy Christmas, but may be through this post you can imagine what a MEMORABLE Eid they had !!!
These days the weather became very cold, the temperature is 2-3 degrees under zero … this cold weather synchronize with not only the raise in the oil, fuel prices but with its exiguity….yesterday my baby (20 months old) cried freezing at night, we have oil storage but we tried to sleep without (soba) an oil heater, to save it for the rest of winter. We get the electricity for ONLY 2 hours a day now, we also don't have hot water!. Since a week now the gas stations in Mosul are shut down , therefore the gasoline in the black market is very expensive, going to my job plus my two daughters'& husband's transportation expense is at least 170000 ID whereas our income together ( my husband & I) is 501000ID !!!We also buy gasoline for the generator!!…
About the safety situation these days while we are waiting for the elections results ,we witness every day the violence in the streets , today I was in my way back from work when suddenly the driver stopped and shouted "disembark quickly" ,as soon as I did a bullet flapped the pavement just beside my foot , I did not feel that, I was shocked , but we ran to a storage a cross the street , the storage owner kept saying 'Thank god you are ok ",I did not get that ',then the driver( who could not make it & follow us to the storage )came after things calm down with some people were in the street telling me that they got terrified to see what happened & show me the bullet….
When sunshine phoned her friend to wish her a merry Christmas, her friend was not happy at all, they could not leave the house because it's dangerous to go out & because they don't have gasoline. Some of our friends did not even go to the church because of the fear of bombing the church ….(I think you can see we are too busy with our life struggles to think about the elections results!)….
Happy New Year, may peace be all over the world …
Mama………..

Mama: I want to extend my deepest sympathy to you and the millions of other good Iraqi people who are having to live in such a sorry and dangerous situation.

I have lived in poverty and in combat. But fortunately my wife, children and parents never had to face the dangers you live through each day.

My hope and prayers are that you will soon be able to enjoy a peaceful life.

My deepest hope is for you to have a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Hi Mama,

I was away on Christmas and didn't gte to see the news, but I heard Donald Rumsfeld spent Christmas (or Christmas Eve?) with the troops right there in Mosul! There's much I don't like aboit Donald Rumsfeld, but he gets a lot of credit from me for doing that! I thought of you and Sunshine when I heard that on the news.

It sounds like you had a very close call there... and a great cab driver, to warn you to get out of the cab!

I'm trying not to worry about the election results too. I hear conflicting stories about what these results will mean for the future of Iraq. Some commentators on the news seem to think everything will be fine, and others are predicting disaster. For all of our sakes, I'm choosing to hope everything will be fine :)

I live in a big city in America where one person a day is murdered but there are lots and lots of people here in this big, big city. And terrorists willing to shoot at just anyone aren't running around here either.

Thank you, Mama, for giving us a true picture of life in Iraq. Some of the news media in America portray the situation as hopeless and that we just leave immediately and let Iraq fend for itself, others portray the situation as much improved and getting better every day.
You let us know that the true situation is somewhere in between.
I know how bad it is to lose power having been through hurricanes and it must be very hard to only have electricity a few hours a day.
Please know that the American people only wish the best for the people of Iraq.
Don't give up, you, your family and the people of Iraq have our prayers for much deserved peace and prosperity.
The God of Abraham bless you and yours.

Mama: I try to imagine the conditions that have to face every day and can't get any real appreciation for the trials you must confront. I pray that things will get better for you and yours in 2006 and that you will begin to enjoy the security and peace that we take for granted here in Canada.

We see reports from Iraq on television, but never know what to believe. More and more I realize that I just can't understand why all the terrible things that are happening take place. We had a shooting by some young men in Toronto a few days ago and a young girl was fatally shot, it has the whole country grieving and trying to rationalize why someone would do something like that.

I guess we have to realize that there will always be evil people in the world and that they are sick in their minds. Wouldn't it be fitting if they could all be taken to an Island somewhere to let them ply their wicked trade on each other and leave the rest of us alone.

I hope things improve for you and that God protects you and your family until this insanity stops.

THANK GOD YOU ARE OK!
that story scares me! what would we do if you were to be hurt! I think I would have to come to mosul & give you a hug and sit with you & your family while you get better!

You are blessed my dear, my spirit will not allow you to be taken from your family, not while I am alive.

The day you are taken from yours is a long way off and you will be an old, senile but happy old lady *wink*

love+prayers allways

Haneen's Mother just had a very close call with a car bomb in Baghdad, I think the same day a bullet almost hit your foot in Mosul.

I notice many of the women in Iraq have blogs. I wish the men in your family had blogs so us guys can work on getting this crazy violence to stop.

Hello Mama,
I accidentally happened on to Sunshine's blog site. I then read your recent blog. I have never written or read blogs before.

I am very impressed and inspired by your very articulate account of your life in Iraq.

I have a grandson there in Iraq. He has been there for 6 weeks. We pray for him and we will pray for you and your family.

May the Lord God bless and keep you and yours. May the day come that will make all the suffering and sacrifice worth it.

I would say, "be strong," but, you know a strength already that most of us have never experienced.

If we can ever be of help or encouragement, please let us know.

Happy New Year! May it bring many positive things to the world and your country. I am also 34 and Taurus - how funny.

I am sorry to hear that the gasoline is such a problem. It bothers me when people here in the US complain of "high" gas prices when they spend more per gallon on a cup of coffee or milk. We should be the last ones to complain about gas prices when everyone in the world pays more.

It is terrible too that you have such a problem with food and medicine. Right now my cat is recovering from a bite and is on pain medication and antibiotics and I have to watch him so he does not pull out the drain they put in his back for the abcess. I love him like a child (my husband and I are still trying for children), but it is sad that he can get better medical care than children in Iraq. Inshallah this will change soon.

God Bless you and your beautiful girls!

"We should be the last ones to complain about gas prices when everyone in the world pays more"

Everyone in the world doesn't pay more, Meredith. Europe is not "the world." The reason the Europeans pay more is because they have tremendous gasoline taxes, not because it costs them more to deliever it to the pumps.

I think it's a terrible idea to end the subsidies on Gasoline in Iraq at this time. But that decision is entirely unrelated to what Americans pay for gas, isn't it?

I'm sorry to hear about your cat, Meredith. I had the same thing happen to one of my cats some 15 years ago. He got an abcess on his hind quarters from a cat fight. It cost me over $2000 in vet bills, but at least the cat survived.

Mama, do you know what model Iraq will be using for medical services yet? Will they be state administered like much of Europe? Or privately administered like the US? DO you have any feeling about which would be better for Iraq? We have very good health care in the US, but it isn't cheap!
