When the urge to write hits you, it’s hard to ignore.
I feel inspired to write today after hearing a lecture on Baghdad.
I’ve been reading Baghdad Burning by Riverbend. I would strongly recommend it.
A little background on me:
-I surround myself with both of my cultures: the LDS and the Jewish cultures
-I’m a conservative, meaning I’ve always sided with Bush concerning the war in Iraq
Needless to say, this book has been a hard pill to swallow. But, it’s given me the gift of growth.
I’ve always believed that this journey is about growing into the person you most admire.
I admire intellectuals.
I admire beauty.
I admire Christ.
These are the things I admire and aspire to. My journey is happening now and I strongly feel that moving forward will help shape me.
It’s time to get up and grow.
