Do you remember those brave young Baghdadis who write to the blog even though it is so dangerous for them to have anything to do with Americans?
Do you remember that before the occupation they were just school kids?
Do you remember that before the occupation they thought we were the greatest! (Think Jay-Z, Friends, and My big Fat Greek Wedding)
Well some of them are still writing.
dear Mr. Bruce Wallace,
how are you Sir?
I am sure that your students like you more than being a teacher. Your words are nice and make me happy...you don't look like american to me!!!or may be you are but a different one. God bless you for helping us and be nice to us.
I wish that all Americans like you.
So why not write to these students? Let them hear your words. Let them know there are Americans who do not hate them; who do not wish them harm; who hope there will be peaceful tomorrows.
