It’s worth a thought

One of the less well-known stories to come out of the war in Iraq is the one of little Fahed.

Fahed, a baby only days old, was found wrapped in a filthy blanket and hidden in a cardboard fruit box just metres from a British Army camp. Fahed was reunited with his family who lived in extremely poor circumstances. The room contained a double bed that, looked like it was made from scrap metal, while others slept on the floor with filthy blankets for protection. Outside, the family farmed tomatoes and herded sheep and goats for a living.

The most interesting part of the story to me however, is that the family was unaware that the war had even begun!
