My mother, the choir director there, has decided to post many of my blog entries on her bulletin board. So, when I post a new entry, the students at the school can read what new things I’m doing here in Iraq. That said, this blog is rated PG. So, please keep your comments respectful and clean!
Today was an educational experience itself!
I coordinated a media roundtable with the Pan-Arab media and my commanding general. I don’t speak very much Arabic (as I’ve discussed before), but I have a linguist in my office who is able to translate for us.
I think it went really well, and I’m hoping to get these media outlets in Iraq to come visit more of our facilities. It’s important that the people of Iraq have a chance to see that we are doing some really great things here. We managed to get ourselves a (well-deserved) bad reputation, and it’s going to take lots of work to show people we are really here to help.
