RNC Report

Just popping in really quick. I am having to watch the convention on my PBS station as the local NBC opted for Fear Factor. Ironic.

Anyway, I was so encouraged to listen to Zainab Al-Suwaij, Executive Director of the American Islamic Congress and a native of Basra.

A few quotes from her wonderful speech:

"There has been a war raging in Iraq for the last three decades."

"Today[sic], Iraq enjoys a new day."

"The United States has given[sic] the most precious gift any nation has ever given another-the gift of democracy and freedom to determine it's own future."

"I tell you proudly that their noble sacrifice was not in vain."

"We[sic] will never forget what your sons and daughters have done for us."
