A good day in Iraq

Today the weather was very nice, no cars and no bombs, it was a great day for a walk so my parents went to vote, and they said that the streets were full of people. So many Iraqis went to the voting centers(not like the last elections). Well I don't have anything else to say since I didn't go with them, but I saw it was a good day in Iraq and that was a thing we haven't seen for a long time..
Best wishes

    Congrats to all Iraqis! The voting is also going on in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    This is a good day. And your site is great.

    Dear Raghda:

    I am so happy that today went well for your country. I bet you will remember all your life the day your parents went out to vote, and one day you will tell your own children about it.

    Meanwhile, stay safe.

    I'm hoping to see some more cats on your site soon! My own cats - Snowy, Paloma and Blueberry - say hello to yours.

    You might enjoy the poems my cats write on my blog. Check back, as we have 8 cats, and there are 5 left who are working on their poems. ;-)

    Hey, good news.

    I hope that the bombings will end in near future and that you all can live in a peaceful country.

    Your blog's one of the most interesting I've ever seen on the WWW. Keep posting, cats are cute (I have one by myself), but your reports are far more interesting.

    Keep your head and thumbs up, all the best from Munich, Germany!

    That's wonderful! I'm glad the day was good for you, your family, and your neighbors. I'm glad there was a good turnout for voting. I'm mostly glad you had an enjoyable day. You all deserve it.

    I am so happy to see you keep you head up in these times. There are people here in the states who think the Iraqi people cannot think for them selves. I am telling you that you are doing a great thing and you are an inspiration to all of us. We love you sis...take care.

    I feel very sorry for Iraqi's. They must be really desperate to have to vote in these elections organised by their occupiers. I pray for the people of Iraq everyday and hope that one day instead of participating in secular democracy, the system that has caused all the blood and tears in Iraq, they will live under an Islamic state that governs according to the sunnah.

    be hunnah, let them decide. if it were up to what you are wishing they probably couldn't even vote.

    all best to your country Baghdad Girl!

    To me it sounds terrible having to live near bombs going off, I'm lucky I don't have to put up with it! You seem to be putting up with it. Anyway,

    Best Wishes,

    I'm glad for your good day. I'm glad you got to feel free from fear for a while. Writing to you from the U.S., I sometimes wonder what the people of America would be thinking if they had to live the way you do - where a day without bombs was a good day.

    Anyway, thank you so much for sharing your news with us. Lots of people here in America want to know what it's really like in Baghdad. And of course we are happy to know that you and your beautiful kitties are staying safe.

    Bless you,

    Dear Baghdad Girl,
    I love that you are happy! It's good that you are safe and fine, even in so much pollitical muck. There are so many cats that you still haven't posted! When you grow up, are you going to travel all over the world to take pictures of cats? It's good to know the bombs and shootings have stopped, and I hope you will have many more days like this, and many more successful elections, now and forever. It's good to know you're safe, too, even after everything.I wish you Luck, lots and lots of luck, from Conneticut in the USA!

    Long Live Iraq and Baghdad Girl!
