Thank you. This was very well written- a realistic glimpse into the heart of this mother.

Intriguing title and you built this piece well. Nice writing and story.
For the curious...the article is not precisely a true story, although the predicament of the Assyrian people is true enough - they have been persecuted for their faith, most recently by the Kurds. I have Assyrian friends who escaped 20 years ago. The story is based on a newsmagazine article I read about family life in Iraq just after the start of the war.
