ABSTRACT
The author of the article presents photographs and discusses life for her family in Iraq now. She states that some things have improved such as the fact that Iraqis can vote, they have the right to express their political opinions, the media are free to report, and people are free to travel. However, they also have to live with shortages of essential goods and services such as gasoline and electricity, and most importantly security, as violence is always near.
