A Decade After Iraq War Began, We Should Make Amends
I was born in Iraq, and in 2003, I was in Baghdad. My family and I spent the first weeks of March preparing for the U.S.-led invasion. I was in charge of storing gas for the generator, placing tape across windows, and hiring a contractor to dig a well in our backyard.
As we feared, President Bush launched his war of choice on March 20. We survived, but we were among the lucky ones.
