Thanks to Allie for turning me on to a very cool site: Hometown Baghdad. The site describes itself as "shot by an all-Iraqi crew and tells the stories of three young people trying to survive in Baghdad."
It's compelling viewing, to watch these young people who are just like young people anywhere. They have graduated from college, are smart, funny, likable. But what kind of future do they have? Not much in Iraq it seems. Which is a shame, because these are exactly the Iraqis who are needed to build a stable future for that country.
So take a look, and let me know what you think.
