Americans Sing for the Liberation of Kuwait

My sweet Kuwait friend sent me this today. It made me cry.

We all have memories of the invasion. I remember it well. We had just moved to Tampa, AdventureMan was working with CENTCOM. He had just brought his very old grandmother to visit with us, and the next day, Iraq invaded, and his grandmother and I didn’t see him again!

We have had a long history with Kuwait, longer than our time living there. Kuwait matters to us. This song makes me cry; the effects of this invasion linger on, resonating and affecting so many lives:

  5. I’m glad you liked this. I had never seen it before. One of my great joys in Kuwait was listening to people’s tales of the invasion and occupation. Some were horrifying, some were even funny, who’d think it? I learned so much admiration for the Kuwaiti spirit.
