In this chapter, Abdul Hadi Isma'il talks about his experience during the Iraq war. Abdul Hadi Isma'il was a principal at a middle school in a poor area of northern Baghdad during the time of the U.S. invasion. The ministry of education ordered them to dismiss classes the day the war started. Abdul Hadi Isma'il did but stayed at the school in order to watch over the campus. He was alone in his house, which was very near the school. He had sent his wife and five children to stay in Khalis, northeast of Baghdad, before the bombing started. But he had many students still with him at the school each day. A lot had volunteered to remain with him to keep an eye on the place. Abdul Hadi Isma'il then went to Yemen, where he stayed for only three months and was forced to return to Baghdad after a falling out with his employers.
