Dangerously organic!

NPR: "After a delayed start due to the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Iraqi students are heading back to school. Many of Iraq's schools lack electricity and running water, but they will be getting something new this year: a history book that reflects the enormous changes the country has been through and includes historical events that were once forbidden topics..."

My motto is "Culture, not politics", and my takeaway from this article is "On that, all the students agree, and they happily add that as 18-year-old high school seniors, they can vote in nationwide elections in January. Then they'll be doing more than discussing Iraq's history; they'll be helping to write it."

In other words, write history today!
