Try to imagine yourself as a lifelong Iraqi citizen.
What do you think would motivate you?
How do you think your life would change if foreign combatants left the country?
How do you think you would feel about the United States and other occupying countries?
It's hard to imagine myself as a lifelong citizen of Iraq because it is so far from my world, my culture and everything I have ever experience or believe. But as a human who is a mother I can imagine that my goals would revolve around my children and giving them a good life. Food, shelter, PEACE. A feeling of security. I would like to think I would want this so much that I would stand up against things that I felt were wrong.
It is also hard for me to imagine life in a country occupied by foreign combatants. I am sure my only concern would again be for my families safety. I would only hope for peace in my country. I would be angry at anyone who was causing all the bloodshed and would want them to leave. I am sure it would be an unbearable situation. It is an unbearable situation.
