  1. I wonder if they sell the “I’m Sunni” or “Shi’ite” t-shirts in Iraq so they can wear them proudly on the outside. Just hope they can have peace in thier country where they can wear shirts such as those like we do and not have to fear 4 our lives. basic freedoms we take 4 granted. Sorry for getting political folks, just read some crazy stuff about the conflict and this blog story reminded me of it. Its good to be able to worship without fear here in the USofA. lets preseve that freedom and keep the fanatics out of the government.
