The start of MIDDLE EAST MONDAYS!

Marhaba! (That’s “hello” in arabic.)

This past weekend I went to the 7th annual Arab Women’s Conference in San Francisco, California

It was incredible. 

While there, I met one of the speakers. In our introductions, I said, “I’ve been passionate about the Middle East for almost twenty years.” She stopped in her pin-striped blazer, well-hanging trousers, and politely savvy heels. She smiled, poignantly. “Thank you for loving the Middle East. We need more of that.”

I smiled a reflective accord. “You’re welcome,” came the happy hope from my living words. 

I love loving the Middle East. It’s one of my most significant passions and callings. Well, I’ve been thinking about commencing the habit of posting on this blog about the Middle East every Monday. The fire found in the conference was my tipping point. 

So, WELCOME TO MIDDLE EAST MONDAYS. This is merely the beginning. See you next week! 

Do share this blog with friends who have an affinity for the Middle East! I want it to be a place for people to come together and strengthen each other in hope and vision for the region. Plus, I truly want to enjoy the great things about that region together. So, if you have a poem, painting, video, etc about the Middle East that you’d like to share here, email me at hopeiraq@gmail.com

Let’s hug the Middle East together… especially on Mondays! 🙂
