Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month.

We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Earlier this week, we mentioned that one of the factors said to be influencing any US attack on Iraq might be the scheduling of Parents Day at Stanford, where Chelsea Clinton attends university.

In July 1991, six months after the outbreak of the Gulf War, Laura Flanders talked to an Iraqi student in Baghdad about the effect the war had on her life. Her name is Hajar Muhammed Ghani. At the time of the interview she was 19 years old, and an English Literature student in her last year of high school. Hajar begins by reflecting on the day the bombs began to fall.
