You care deeply about children and children's literacy. U.N. statistics show that 2 years ago 75% of Iraqi elementary age children were in school. Today only 25% are in school. Through inexperience, incompetence or greed (oil) your family has removed from millions of children the right to a safe environment and the opportunity of an education. If there is anything you can do to help, including your personal prayers, I'm sure these children will be grateful. Also, please don't say that much of Iraq is stable. Political statements that are dissonant with the tragic facts of Iraq today belittles you, me and America.
