Jim Lommasson / What We Carried

Dr. Baher Butti:

Brother in law: Seattle Washington USA. Sister: Budapest Hungary. Brother: In Jordan….no maybe Dubai/UAE. Brother: Brighten England. G.B. (Me) Portland/OR/USA. Mother: Buried in Dubai or maybe Abu Dhabi….well, I have to admit I don’t know where my mother was buried! I am waiting for my American passport because UAE will not let me visit my mother’s grave with my Iraqi passport … oh those politicians.

Blassam Matti:

We were gathered and joy fills our hearts. Time separated us and meeting with brothers became a far dream.
