Iraqi pride

Iraqies are usually very proud about their origin, when they are abroad, they wait the opportunity to say that they are Iraqies, say it and enjoy with great pleasure the reaction of others……
Abbas Cheechan, an Iraqi poet, writing in the Iraqi slang language which is mainly arabic but mixed with some words of Sumerian, Aramy, Ashurian, Persian, Turkish and other words, his poems were subject of many arguing between Iraqies about their country and political changes….
In psychiatry we say that we the form of thought is more important to us in mental exam of person than the content of his/her thought…and when I was seeing this poet telling his poems on air without reading from a paper I was amazed by his form of thought, of his body movements, and of his voice and reaction of his typical Iraqi face…
Look at all the pride he is showing in his body language….his words were full of pride of being Iraqi, and were sad because of the bad luck of this country after its golden era of Abbasid ended….
Abbas Cheechan, we hope all that our Iraq will heal its wounds and hold us back all in it with all of our divercities and races and religions…all of we are Iraqies inspite of the diversity of our thought content, but our thought form seems similar...….

When he appeared in TV all of we sat silently hearing his words….some did not liked his words due to some causes but they cannot help to stay hearing what he says, his clever use of words, creating new meanings, and playing with meanings, but still make it easy for even the simple people to understand, and more vital is to feel….
Some of the words he said I did not agree on, but, I cannot help to prevent the hair in my forarm to erect….
Am proud am Iraqi…

Dear Dr. Al Bedri,
i am glad that you have pride in being an Iraqi, that is wonderful. Sometimes, if i meet a person who looks like they are from another country outside the US i ask them where they are from and hope they do not take offense at my question, because i ask it out of true interest and love to meet people from around the world. So, i hope they are proud when they answer what country they come from, as i want them to be and i always say with enthusiasm (honest interest as well) how interesting it is to meet someone from...(where ever)...did that make any sense?
Be well, t.

Dear Dr. El Berdi,

Thank you so much for your always wise and kind comments. Why, Dahmane (i know it is a man's name, should be ALOT of deep psychiatry in just that, but i like the name) is my ideal self, the self i wish i was. Oh yes, she is also a medical student, a very good one at that. and she is thin and prety and smart. My stream of consciousness for the day. best, t.

Dear Dr. El Bedri,

Thank you for your wise and kind comments. "Dahmane", (yes, i know it is a man's name, should be plenty of psychiatry right there, but i like the name ), is my ideal self, the person i wish i was. "She" is also a medical student and a very good one at that. And thin and pretty and smart....and young! My stream of consciousness for the day.

best, t.

Here is another reason for Iraqi pride...i find it interesting it takes 3 days to get a psychiatric evaluation in Richmond (VA) ...i imagine things work much more quickly in Mosul...!
