A shot overlooking Kandern at midnight. Happy New Year everyone.
The fireworks in this picture are set off privately in the streets of our village. You can buy fireworks (bottle rockets, firecrackers, etc.) in the grocery stores here just prior to New Years Eve. And best of all...IT'S LEGAL. What a blast - literally. It was doubly fun this year when a neighbor's shrubbery caught on fire from a stray firework and the volunteer fire department showed up in the middle of everything. It was sure exciting.

Did you know that there is a part of Iraq that is genuinely thankful for help from the West? Visit www.theotheriraq.com and watch a couple of the videos there. They will encourage you.
I can confirm that good things are happening in the north of Iraq - now known as "Iraqi Kurdistan". I have friends who have been there and saw things first hand. Several of our BFA staff members have gone to northern Iraq to help a Christian school there called "Classical School of the Medes." To learn more about this school for the children of northern Iraq go to www.csmedes.org.
At www.csmedes.org, click on the "Philosophy" tab and see what you think. It's amazing.
