As coalition forces rolled into Baghdad and Iraqis took to the streets to celebrate, I started to wonder about some things.
I thought about the people all over the world that had protested. They said that Iraqis didn't want this. They shouted that the US was invading Iraq and killing civilians.
They spoke for the Iraqis, without ever listening.
But now the Iraqis have spoken for themselves. Destroying statues and posters, cheering for coalition soldiers and thanking them.
So where are the protests now?
I don't actually agree with the way some of these was done, but after seeing all these images today, after seeing Iraqis show their true feelings, I just feel happy for the Iraqi people, and wish they'll live in a peaceful and prosperous country.
Usually I remember about all the times I've failed.
But today I started thinking about all the nice things I remember, and...well, at least it was more than one.
1. Hearing Paul McCartney play live for 2 hours and singing every song.
2. Actually believing that I had seen Santa flying over my house.
3. Finally getting to kiss the first girl I really really liked.
Um, I really thought there would be more of these and that I would actually have to leave some out and now I can't think of any more.
Dammit, I really could use some more good memories...
Can you spare some?
