Hometown Baghdad

Balou: Thanks for posting this. It is (relatively) easy to forget what war does to the lives of people when we are "safe" and comfortable in our own homes.

This video is just so completely... tragic. And real. And brave. And I wonder how we (human race) can keep inflicting this horror on each other and our collective pysches?

And approve of it, or be apathetic about it, or anything other than deeply and overwhelmingly disturbed by it...
