Who am I. I am an Iraqi-Canadian and I am an optimist. Just after the fall of Saddam I sat with my Iraqi friends in a cafe in Montreal and we had two out-of-town visitors. The two were collecting names of Iraqis with experience, when it was my turn to give my name I was by-passed. If I were somebody else I would have been hurt, but I went home that night feeling special, I felt like Joseph the Prophet and I didn’t say the cup was three quarters empty, I said to myself the cup is quarter full. That’s me.
