They were not experts!!

In the last several cold days, we had to live without electricity at all. In such circumstances my children were studying and going to school . it was hard cold dark nights for them but they don’t have any choice, but to survive and go on .
at one of those dark cold nights we were informed by one of the neighbors that at 9 o’clock their will be an explosion ,he said the American soldiers were trying to destroy the residue of the near bridge which was previously destroyed by terrorists through exploding two cars in addition to decoying the bridge it self, at that time our house was badly damaged and we were lucky to live to tell the tale.
we opened our windows and took cover in the freezing corridor, we waited from 8:20 pm till 10 pm and nothing happened, my little boy yosif slept after long time of sitting on the torch light alone in such coldness then felt to sleep. I decided to take a risk and put my boy in his bed( it’s besides mine), “we can’t bear the cold for ever “I said,.
at 11pm a very loud explosion opened the bedroom’s windows ,we also heard the windows breaking down ,the very cold bluster carried dusts into inside.
Miriam who was just falling asleep started screaming. I laid over my son and my husband ran through the darkness to Miriam . then we checked everyone and the rest of the house. we had some damages in the windows ,but luckily not in the bed rooms.
we decided to go back to bed and sweep the shrapnel’s and start to fix the damages early in the morning. But a louder explosion at 12 in the midnight terrified us and caused more damages to the windows and doors leaving the house so cold, dirty and leaving us astonished.
Next day my daughters had to go to attend their exams after a horrible night ,my husband had to go to work too, but I took the day off and stayed home to try to clean in spite of the frostiness and the tiredness. When my husband returned home he told me that those soldiers were not experts and nothing happened to the bridge residue, only the neighborhood houses were damaged!!!!!!!!!!.

Hi. I just wanted you to know that you have a reader in NY. I also read Sunshine's journal. I have compassion for you all.

A question: Your windows seem to have a very short life! Is it easy to find glass to replace the panes? I'd have long ago given up and used plywood!

Sorry to hear about your living conditions and your house. Its 11F here and I can't imagine haveing to try to live without lights or heat. Your life is very hard. I wonder why the solders didn't do it during the daytime? It does seem that your windows are blown out almost every week. You are a very strong family to live through everything. Also Sunshine gets good marks in school under those conditions. Amazing!!!!!!

I am sorry to read all the bad things that you and your family are having to go through. I am even more sorry that there is nothing I can do to help you. I have experienced many of the hardships that are happening to you but I did not have any children with me at the time. Mama, I hope that everything will get better soon.

I pray and ask God to help you every day.

I hope that Mariam and Yosif can will be able to get calm and grow up to be just like Sunshine.

It`s just so inexcusable that you have to live through all the horror going on there. I have no words and feel helpless about it all. This is all so wrong.
My prayers to you and your family and that your children can someday experience a better world and peace as we here are very very fortunate to have.

Hi Mama... sorry to hear your home was damaged (again) and that all of you were put through that stress again.

I'm not sure what happened with that ruined bridge that was to be blown up. I think if they'd really wanted to blow up the bridge, they would have. Maybe they found some IEDs on the bridge... was it still in use at all? Or maybe they are that incompetent, but I hope not :O

Hi Mama,
You need a stove/heater that runs on broken glass. Think of all the free fuel you would have in Mosul.

I'm sure you've seen "experts" in your field that weren't "experts" afterall.

A word of caution...Avoid experts.
