Quinonostante wrote:The bombing started at 3am," [said a sister-in-law of the groom] from her bed in the emergency ward at Ramadi general hospital, 60 miles west of Baghdad. "We went out of the house and the American soldiers started to shoot us. They were shooting low on the ground and targeting us one by one," she said. She ran with her youngest child in her arms and her two young boys, Ali and Hamza, close behind. As she crossed the fields a shell exploded close to her, fracturing her legs and knocking her to the ground.

She lay there and a second round hit her on the right arm. By then her two boys lay dead. "I left them because they were dead," she said. One, she saw, had been decapitated by a shell...

By the time the sun rose on Wednesday over the Rakat family house, the raid had claimed 42 lives...

Among the dead were 27 members of the extended Rakat family, their wedding guests and even the band of musicians hired to play at the ceremony... 11 of the dead were women and 14 were children."

The shock of Tannaz's situation really brings this home too doesn't it? It's not just a remote anonymous tragedy any more.

It brings all this to reality when you actually know some one that has been caught up inall this. What is wrong with the world, why can't we live in peace.

Shame that the whole world can't take time out and give some thought to what it's really all about. John Lennon said it all - 'Give Peace a Chance'. That's what the pictures and music do for me.
