A big one was won for the people today, on the same level as the Berlin Wall coming down. Millions of Iraqis, against the threat by thugs with their death, voted for the first meaningful election of their lifetimes.

Some kids even found time to play soccer .

Sure, there's a long ways to go to peace, but a huge step was taken today, despite the naysayers here in America and the little spineless people worldwide.

We had all kinds of feelings in our minds while we were on our way to the ballot box except one feeling that never came to us, that was fear.
We could smell pride in the atmosphere this morning; everyone we saw was holding up his blue tipped finger with broad smiles on the faces while walking out of the center.


I couldn't think of a scene more beautiful than that.
From the early hours of the morning, People filled the street to the voting center in my neighborhood; youths, elders, women and men. Women's turn out was higher by the way. And by 11 am the boxes where I live were almost full!
Anyone watching that scene cannot but have tears of happiness, hope, pride and triumph.
