You'll be wondering why a person like me who lives a comfortable, stable, and secure life here in the United States is risking everything and putting himself in danger by going there now, when things are so bad.He has lived in the West for 30 years. I salute his commitment to the Iraqi people.
The answer is very simple: Iraq needs help and my duty is to help. Also, I love Iraq more than anything else in my life. To me, it means love, dignity, happiness, my family, my oldest friends and everything that is most precious.
If I stay away from Iraq too long, I'm thirsty for its water, its sun, and its air.

I still recommend them to everyone who asks.
