I am Iraqi Women my age is 65 years now - I lost my husband in iraqi iranian war he left me with my baby 10 months old. I did not get married again my life become work only to rise my son .sent him to good school eat and dressing very good cloths ,I gave him everything he needs I thanks my god he became very good young man .
I had good talent in drawing and painting so I took courses in drawing beside my BA in Economics And BA in Interior design.I had very good life in Baghdad I have shop and small house car..but I lost all this because the war in 2013 .I run away to UAE,since that time and till now i am living in uae.
I tried to find a job but I could not because my age- my panting just in middle not very very good to take apart in artist gallery which I should pay to much money -if they accept me-and the ordener people they do not have enough money to buy mine.

Now in this age I do not have house or insurance I still panting but I could not seal my paintings. Sorry to disturb you in my story I wish you all happy life .
thanking you

More than Good Wishes
by: AMary Jane Reynoldsnonymous

My good Iraqi Lady - How I wish I could send you more than Good Wishes, when you have lost so much through no fault of your own. I am 97 years old and I am leaving this life soon with a heavy heart.
Although life has been fulfilling to me with its share of happiness and sadness, I do not see that man has made much progress in eradicating that greatest of all evils - war.
I am so sorry that you lost the decent life you had built up for yourself with the war that our country perpetrated. I am ashamed and wish it could be made up somehow. Its not enough to say "Life is Not Fair" You have all my best wishes and prayers that something good will happen for you.
