Mesopotamia Between Yesterday & Today! (Eastern Liberty)
Eastern Liberty ^ | Friday, October 22, 2010 | Freedom

I had the opportunity to visit the Iraqi museum in Baghdad before fallen at 2003 & it was days before the war!

And every time when I see our ancient monuments in other countries, I don't feel happy about it, but in same time I feel that they are more safe than here because I know if those were here in Iraq they would be destroyed or disappeared.

This glory for mesopotamia gave us different picture of Iraq, it isn't the picture of bombing cars, or seeing blood in streets, or "terrorism"...etc, [...]

Iraq has a rich civilization through history, but we shouldn't stop to this point , we didn't improve it , actually we went against this direction, & why we are longing to our past & history? because we didn't give any new things to our present that is our east's problems, we can't go forward, don't get me wrong I'm not saying to forget the past, never! but, we should add something, to keep working, instead of keep looking backward!

People who cherish their past can use it as a foundation for a better future.
