I found this copy that I think was supposed to be published in our summer house in Ireland, written by our British neighbour and family friend back in Kuwait. It was written during the Gulf War, when my mum soon became pregnant with me, and mentions my parents occasionally. I think I read it all.. poignant and gripping and very real. My father worked in the hospitals in Kuwait during the war and my mum stayed and raised my 2 brothers there for the beginning of it, and the whole experience left some scars. Yet, how many of you could say that your parents lived during a war, and went through it all?
