When Dreams Come True

Army Sgt. Stephen Covell and an Iraqi girl go down a slide at the Al-Moutasam kindergarten playground during the school’s reopening ceremony March 3, 2009, in eastern Baghdad’s Rusafa district. U.S. Army photo by Georges Aboumrad.

Iraqi girls dressed like little princesses in a school playground where the walls are painted with butterflies and flowers... for some, it required the "willing suspension of disbelief." For others, it was the belief that a people free to choose will always choose peace.

Found at Chuck's, who is recovering from surgery number 37 or 38, he's not sure.
