I am proud



Hey,

I just got back from Syria three days ago.I spent the most wonderful week among my relatives and family, I felt that I am in Iraq.I saw many nice places and had so much fun with Najma and HNK.I cried a little when I said good bye but I am fine now, at least I had the chance to see them.
I watched all the Iraqi football games and felt so proud when we won Asia Cup.I saw the Iraqis celebrate in Syria and Dubai, I never thought that I'll see them happy again.The Iraqi football brought us back to life.I want to say congratulations to our champions, and I wish you, our brave Iraqi football team, the best luck.

    I think the whole world joins you in being happy and proud that the Iraqi soccer team won!! Finally, the people can experience some long-deserved joy! It must have been a wonderful day to be there for a change. Hopefully, this is just the beginning of people coming together and seeing how much they have in common, which is a truth you always remind us of. I'm also very glad that you enjoyed your trip and had such a nice time. Thank you!

    Dear Raghda,

    I’m so happy you had a nice time in Syria with your family. I’ve been reading your blog and also Najma’s, HNK’s and Sunshine’s for several years. I’m awed by all of you -- your overwhelming courage, strength and determination to pursue your dreams in spite of the mess we’ve made of your country. You must have incredible times together.

    Congratulations on the Asian Cup soccer victory!! I’m glad everyone in Iraq could experience the joy together.

    The good news made the front page of our paper, The Miami Herald. Here are a couple of quotes:

    Vendors sold out of the T-shirt that emphasizes unity over sectarianism with the slogan, ``I am Iraqi.''

    ''I can't describe my feelings because I've never had such a great feeling,'' said Qusai Hadi, 31, from Basra, a largely Shiite Muslim city in southern Iraq. ``Those players planted happiness in every Iraqi's heart. I wish I could kiss them, one by one. . . . I hope this happiness lasts forever.''

    And a link to the story:

    Iraq for ever, cats for ever and Baghdad Girl for ever...

    Sincerely,
    Jane

    There may not be a cat in the picture, but the Iraqi team is nicknamed "The Lions", so maybe that counts as a cat, or two, or three... :)

    I'm really happy the Iraqi team won the Asia Cup. It was such good news for all Iraqi people! :)

    I'm also happy for you Raghda that you had a great time in Syria and got to see Najma and Hnk. :)
