Iraqi Women

I feel very sad for Iraqi women...I feel very sad for myself.

I see them struggling day in, day out, with no support...I see them aged by a 100 years...I see them still trying to figure out what happened to them...

I feel sad for Iraqi women...for what they had to endure, what they endure today, I feel sad for their silence, their losses and the indifference that surrounds them...

I feel sadness and pride at the same time...

I know how tenacious we are.
