Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily, or are just some fun topics! Today is January 14th, 2008, I’m Anna, and I am here to talk about the current event of snow falling in Baghdad, Iraq for the first time in a century.
Snow delighted the people of Iraq on Friday, January 11th, 2008. The people think it is a sign of peace.
“A few minutes ago, I was covered with snowflakes. In my hair, on my shoulders. I invite all people to enjoy peace. Because snow means peace.” says Iraqi Hassan Zahar. Quote taken from Reuters.
Why would the Iraqis first think of peace when the snow fell? Would you want to think peace was near? Leave us a comment to express your opinion!
Remember, I’m Anna, and this is the Modern Typewriter, OUT!
