I came across this a little while ago, long after it was written. After looking at social justice issues, today I’d like you to spend much of the lesson reading the blog of a young woman from Baghdad.

In the last 15 min or so, write me an email with your thoughts – so you might like to take a couple of notes, or copy/paste any quotes etc (and date of post) that you find interesting, perhaps different to your perception of living in a war zone, or living in the Middle East, or on becoming a refugee. I was intrigued by Riverbend, I hope you find her story interesting.

Start with her first posts (scroll down to the bottom and work your way up)

August 2003

Read from at least one post from 2004, 2005, 2006 (choose from the archive on the right)

Then from her last few posts in 2007

April, September, October

And her final post from 2013


Good luck with exams, see you next semester for Ethics 🙂
