It was just announced that a polling place in Southern Iraq had to be closed. So the resisdents in that area walked 13 miles to the next closest poll. Walking 13 miles!! Incredible. They had pictures and it wasn't just a few, it appeared as if there were hundreds. I'd say that represents a burning desire and points to the hope that the population has. How can we not help?
