Dylan was entranced by the animated avatar of Professor McGonagall transforming from a cat into a witch used by a poster at a Harry Potter discussion board I frequent. I asked him if he wanted to see more kitties. I did a Google image search for “cat,” and the first picture that appeared came from a blog kept by a fourteen-year-old Iraqi girl named Raghda. She posts a new picture of a cute cat almost each day. In the midst of all these cute kittens, she posted an entry titled “We Are Living in Hell” after a bomb exploded down the street from her home, shattering her windows and causing the deaths of two children she knew. It’s amazing to me that Raghda is still able to search for and find beauty in this world (in feline form) in the midst of the daily terror in which she lives.
