turn back to basic

Hello all,

I really feel sorry that I didn't write from along long time, well, the first reason was I was taking my mid year exams and now I finished them. So I am in the holiday now, two weeks of holiday.

In this year the last year of secondary school we are taking 8 basic courses and we can divided them into :
Physics, chemist, biology, mathematics, Islamic, Arabic, English, French.

well, In this year our marks during the year are not important and they don't play part in the college we have to go. For now, I just need to have more than 50% in all the exams and then I will take the exams that are the most important exams in my life and in this exams my grade will decided whither I have to go to pharmacy or engineering or any other college.

I will take that exams in June and till that time the only thing I can do for me is to study and the only thing you can do for me is to pray.

my father now is in Syria, my uncle need to make an operation in hurry time after he had a heart attack.
he did the operation before three days and now he is fine thanks God. We are expect my father to come today.

the last few weeks was hard for me. But it was harder for some people who are close to me. such as My friend who moved to Syria with her parents and leave Iraq to move after that to Canada. Before a couple of weeks I heard that her father died in Syria. that was horrible. I didn't stop thinking of her. I was so worried for her and feel so sorry. I called her and her voice was horrible. So please join my prayer for her.

The other horrible news I heard was that my friend's niece who is few months younger than Aya died when she was a sleep without any reason, she wasn't sick or something.
That news make me crazy and seeing my friend make me feel horrible. whenever she talked to me I began to cry and she began to cry. I don't know what to say to her. I know how much she loved her niece and how much it's hard to her to lose her. she said some words that make me shiver. she said that when she remembers her niece she feel like if there is someone taking her heart away and then turning it to it's place. you know that was exactly what I feel when I think of Baghdad and remember how much beautiful it was and how much we were happy in Saddam's time.
If losing a niece hurt her as much as losing a country then we have to do something for this girl. because I know what happened to her is bigger than she could bear. bigger than her to believe.

قل لمن لست أسمي.............بابي انتِ وأُمي
بأبي انتِ لقد أُحبُ .........بحتُ من أكبر همي
ولقد قلتُ لاهلي ...........أذا اذاب الحبُ لحمي
وأرادوا لي طبيباً ...........فاكتفوا مني بعلمي
من يكُ يجهلُ ما ألقى......... فأن الحب سقمي
أن روحي لدى بغداد .......وفي الكوفة جسمي

لابي العتاهيه

Dear hnk,
What a kind and compassionate girl you are. Your concern for others makes you very special. If you are willing to share your friends' hurt, it may help a little bit.

I hope your father has arrived home safely and that you find some happy things to do on your holiday.

Your friend always.

Dear HNK,

I'm sorry about your situation, thanks for telling us what's happening over there.

Now I'm curious about Iraq (I have been reading more about Iraq, how it is a country very rich of history)

Can I ask you how it is over there?

Are you close to Kurdistan? Is it really nice in Kurdistan?

And can Sunnis marry Shiites? Can an Iraqi marry a Westerner (like an American? or do Iraqis only marry Iraqis?)
And do boys go to school with girls?

I was thinking about writing a report on Iraq for my English class...

thanks HNK, I hope you can answer my questions :)

Dear Kylie,
well, Mosul is too close to kurdistan. you need one and a half hour to reach Kurdistan. Kurdistan is so beautiful, you can find some pictures of kurdistan if you search in my blog.
In Iraq:
Sunnis can marry Shia. As a matter of fact two of my relatives married Shiee.
Iraqi can married Westerner.

in the primary school, boys and girls go to the same school. but in Secondary school Girls have their own school as well as boys.

In college boys and girls go together to their college.
and you well come.

Hey LIBBY, thanks for passing by.

Hi Hnk :)

I'm glad to hear that your uncle is feeling fine! Its a good thing that he had your father to help him.

I wish you good luck in studying for your college entrance exams!

I am sorry that your friend's father died and your other friend's niece. It is very hard to know what to say to friends who have lost dear loved ones. What I have tried to do is to reassure them that I love them and will be there for them whenever they need me.

I hope that you and Najma will have some fun during your vacation! :)
