Reporting first-hand accounts of Iraq war
I am in DESPERATE need of reading something new in reporting on the Iraq situation. Perhaps you folks could share with me the URL to a few web blogs from first-hand accounts from aid organizations in Iraq attempting to restore necessary health and social services in Iraq. I need some stories to restore my hope and faith in humanity to cast some optimism on this overshadowing news of doom and death that barrages me on a daily basis.

Thanks in advance! :)

2. Don't exhaust yourself searching...
I could certainly find this information myself, however I was figuring that perhaps people had sites bookmarked that they could share with little effort on their part. I appriciate your generosity, however...

3. re: Iraq blogs
Here are a few that I read regularly. Most are up to date within a few days. Don't look for a happy face, though. What's happening there is bad.

Sorry ...
