Iraq Elections - Tomorow!Topics: Iraq Elections
-Ali in Iraq
Less than a day before I get to vote for the first time in real elections. One that I chose to participate in and that I've dreamed about for such a long time.
(...) I'm going to vote and I don't care if it means risking my life and I don't even care that much how the end results are going to be, not now...
(...) All my life like all Iraqis, I was not in control of my life. I started looking to myself as a humanist many years ago. Maybe it's because I lost belief in my government and even sometimes in my country and my people. My country was just a stupid large piece of dirt that meant nothing and offered nothing to me but suffering and humiliation....
(...) thanks to other humans, not from my area, religion and who don't even speak my language, I and all Iraqis have the real chance to make the change...
(...) Tomorrow I and the Iraqis that are going to vote will rule, not the politicians we're going to vote for, as it's our decision and they'll work for us this time and if we don't like them we'll kick them out!
(...) Tomorrow my heart will race my hand to the box. Tomorrow I'll race even the sun to the voting centre, my Ka'aba and my Mecca. I'm so excited and so happy that I can't even feel the fear I though I would have at this time.
I can't wait until tomorrow.
Sometimes the best commentary for a fellow blogger to write, is no commentary at all. This is one of those times. I am proud of what America is doing for the Iraqis, and I am proud of Iraqis like Ali. Go read all of Ali's post.
