"As for the monuments you have built, I wouldn't beat myself up for it if I were you because the ancients were a magnificent people and should be honored and you are Iraqi so why not glorify the past of our country."
That's what I tell myself; that I will always honor the ancient people of Iraq, all of them, including those of the Great Islamic Empire, for their magnificent contributions to human growth and civilization...and I have no doubt that vestiges of all those ancient people are in many of us....but this shouldn't make idiots out of us. I just wish I had known enough NOT to have put that bogus "history" on the plaque...I told Dr Joseph once that I was going to approach the San Francisco Arts Commission and tell them of my huge error and ask if I could replace what's written on there, making no mention of Christianity or modern assyrians, but he cautioned me against it.....sigh.
