Clips from the Iraqi Reality Show

"Among dozens of weeping women and men, Um Mohammed pushed away the weepers and sobbed at her 17-year-old son’s blood and the remaining of his flesh. With unforgotten grief, she was crying hysterically. She was left with two wounded daughters, a newly handicapped son and a cheerless father.

Um Mohammed is my friend’s aunt who lives in Baghdad’s western most disastrous, dangerous and violence-plagued areas, Khadhra. Like all the people living there, Um Mohammed’s family wasn’t spared the bombings and the attacks in a completely lawless neighborhood where armed men move freely like ants."
