I had a couple days of self indulgence in agonizing over what, for many, might seem a luxury. A trip overseas for a wedding. Then I read the most recent posting of an Iraqi girl who is desperate to simply go to school and live a normal life without the stresses and horrors of the life that is in her homeland.
Have a wander over and read Sunshine's blog called Days of My Life. I have been reading her posts for several months, sometimes with awe, sometimes anguish. While simply telling it like it is, as seen through the eyes of a teenager, she puts shame to some of our worries, our complacencies. This isn't her intent at all, but you cannot read of her experiences without feeling some of that.
