Little Scottie regales us with touching stories about Iraqi’s experiencing democracy – outside of Iraq. Holden illustrates Scotties’ stories with images of Iraqis experiencing democracy within Iraq.
One woman who cast her vote in Jordan said, “I’ve been waiting for this day, I’ve been dreaming of this day to tell my grandchildren that in the first election in the history of Iraq, I was the first woman to vote.”
You had another individual who was in Australia said, “When I look at the ink on my finger, this is a mark of freedom.”
And just one more quote. Another one who held up his ink-stained finger said, “This is a symbol of democracy.”
And one other who said, “This is the first time we can vote with any freedom. I could almost cry.”
