The Arab World:
I don't know, I'm just bored.

I also didn't mention some other Arab nations..

But I tried, right? c:

Views from the Ziggurat of Ur
It was interesting, taking in the energy of the atmosphere provided by these ancient relics.
Standing on top of the Sumerian Ziggurat and looking beyond into remnants of the palace and further into the valley of kings.

I was lucky to have entered as far as into the tombs on where the kings lay.

It was an experience I'll never forget, and an experience I wish to relive soon.

Interesting to note, if you look into the far background you can see the US military base built and used during the invasion of Iraq, 2003.

Ziggurat of Ur
Took this while adorning the beauty of the Sumerian structure.
It's around 4000 years old and still manages to amaze modern architects.

I was lucky to have seen this.
It was unfortunate that I found many graffiti around the site.

Nasiriyah, South Iraq
I took this shot as the lights lit upon the 'bridge of civilizations' in Nasiriyah, Southern Mesopotamia.
I particularly liked the way the bridge reflected onto the Euphrates river.

My country has seen the rise of terrorism.
Please stand with us.

Stand with the people of Mesopotamia by spreading awareness.

We just want peace.
We want to do what everyone else does so easily.
To simply live life.

Unfortunately, even our capital Baghdad has been shaken with bombs claiming the lives of thousands of innocent souls.
Yet we still feel as though our voices aren't heard.

We love everyone, and we love peace.
We just want the war and fighting to end.

Stand with Iraq. Assyria. Kurdistan. Basra. Mosul. Babylon. Sumer. Akkad.

Thanks for the watch. :)
 

I notice you're from the Iraq! Ton of history there! I’ve always been
fascinated with the Middle East.

 

I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t know much about their own country,

much less anyone else's.  :(

 

I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness

about what's going on in the rest of the world. Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from another country, if I've done their country
I let them know. It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)

 

This update is about your home! Its written from a Christian perspective
so please don't be offended.

You're more than welcome.
Yes I am, and thank you so much, I feel flattered :)

I agree, people have distanced themselves from the contemporary world nowadays and our too focused on online trends and social media.

I cannot thank you enough for your beautiful post.
And don't worry, I am in no way offended.
My heart is crying for the innocent Christians who are persecuted everyday for no reason.
Especially in Syria where Islamic jihadists labelled as "moderate rebels" are terrorizing Christian villages with international support.

Iraq has changed from what it once was.
Our leaders are now corrupt, hiding behind stacks of oil money.

And I agree with your message. I hope the Christians stay strong to their faith and I hope they return back home.
Iraq is nothing without our Christian brothers and sisters.

I am a Shia from the south and so unfortunately I don't see much Christians.
But I have seen them in Baghdad, they so peaceful and loving.

God bless you. ♥
