Too much to endure ...

When my dad entered the home on Wednesday, it was obviously that he was extremely sad , my mom asked him if he was ok, he said " my friend N was murdered " , it was a shock to all of us specially for my dad because they were friends since they were children & they live in the same neighborhood , I felt sad too , N was a father of three young children ,& he got married 5 years ago he was a police officer ,just like his dad.
He left behind him three children , a widow , his mom , 6 brothers ,& 2 sisters . In the second day of Ramadan which it suppose to be a peaceful month, & mubarak (blessed) to all people …
The terrorists are killing the policemen , & national guards , because they are serving their country . The doctors , engineers, teachers , etc are serving their county too , will the terrorists kill all the good Iraqi people ?!
In the next day, my dad came from his work & I knew that there Is something wrong his face was reddish & he was angry , he said that 2 of his work buddies was killed, they were functionaries , why they were killed ? they don’t work with Americans nor national guards nor work for any political direction.
I don't want to hear that someone was killed anymore , I hear almost everyday news like these , but I can't tolerate anymore.
Sometimes I wonder why we don’t leave Iraq , but if all good people , educated Iraqis leave Iraq , Iraq will be home for the terrorists & bad people , & if the policemen left their job , the terrorists will win , because that is their point to make the Iraqis leave Iraq , & that will not happen ..
The terrorists are few & if we cooperate with each other & with the national guards ,& policemen someday Iraqis will re-build Iraq , & it will be a peaceful country , void from terrorists & violence .
The hope is still Existent…

I wish that there was some way that you could be sheltered from some of this horrible news. You deserve to have the carefree life that a young lady of your age should have. Yes, things are bad right now. But trust that things are going to get better. I will be praying for you.
Take care.

Dear Sunshine,

Please give my condolences to your father. What a dreadful thing to lose a good friend.

Your post is a sad one but has a hopeful ending.

I'm wishing the remainder of Ramadan will have less turmoil.

be extra-nice to your father over the coming months,

death may be something we slowly adapt to, but death of a dear friend will never be acceptable.

this is your chance to make your relationship with your father better- I remember you posting about it before.

Like you said, if families, friends and country men/women stay together, nothing can defeat you.

stay strong my dear =)

we are all watching over you.
