To the Humanity, Good peoples, Rockers & Rapers, Athletics, Video Games Players, Computers Geeks, USAGC, and every Human have a sense in his soul

"…Every morning I wake up and look through the window painful thought flash in my mind, will I get the chance tomorrow to smell the scent of morning or Iīll be thrown away on some garbage and the dogs eat whatīs left of me"

My name is Kh, Iīm 24 years old, live in Baghdad īDCī, and married to a lovely wonderful girl.
First of all I want to apologize for my weak English, and for the weird intro, I just wanted to show you how my days start.
I wrote this because I felt a kind of hope Iīve been searching for it a long time, that someone out there can help me change my life.
I have a lot to say to you that exhausting my heart, but I know most of you donīt have too much time, so Iīll try to keep it short.

Iīm an IT Specialist / Network Administrator and everything I know I learnt by myself, I read every tech book fall In my hands though they were old but it opened a big way for me till I get my first access to the Internet and the real magic begins, and I learnt English from video games, songs and movies.All the time I wondered what did I do and why I born an Iraqi, I didnīt get the chance to chose my life, it feels like a curse no one in the world want me and in here everyone want to kill me, all I wanted to be treat like a human, why I have to be Iraqi Iīm human the son of this planet, isnīt my right to be free go where ever I want? I donīt believe in borders or anything differ me form other people in the world.
Sometimes I think of myself in this way, I opened my eyes on war in 1983 and waste the best half of my life in war that Iīm still living it, is that suppose to be natural to live with!

When I went to high school I start looking for a job to cover my needs because my father barely covered the family Expenses, I was fixing computers and simple VCD and PlayStation problems at home, after that I get a job at computer maintenance office and this was the beginning, I prove my skills, then I start to look for better jobs while I was studying, I did a great achievements through my working life, and I was the first on my class in the Cisco Academy with 95 grade, Iīm just saying this to show you Iīm not a loser , I hoped that one day I become a professional and get the chance to work at Cisco System, Google, Microsoft or other big companies between people Who appreciate my work.

All I want is small chance a first step a decent job where I can develop my IT skills and make all my dreams come true.

In the age of 15 I start love guitar I always dream to be a great guitar player like Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Eddie Van Halen or Steve Vie .etc, and at the time I let my hair grow longer it was a hard experience for me, people start to call me crazy, when I was walking in the street I heard someone said look at that girl, after all I forced to cut It cause they simply started to hurt or kill anyone how they think he try to look like western, it was a sad day, I really loved my hair Iīve been asking myself why should I have to live with people like this? Itīs driving me Insane, so many times I wanted to give up life but I keep hanging for a moment of hope because I believe in such day, though I never get any support form my family about music except for my aunt, it has been seven years since I saw a Jackson guitar picture in old magazine and still dream about hold it in my hands, stuff like this never reach Iraq because people donīt care about such music. Why it really has to be so hard, itīs like a miracle to me! Are these things that I always want it is so hard to get for anyone or it just me?

"Have you ever felt when you set around lots of people and feel that you are so alone? …I did"

Imagine this Iīve collect lots of books & DVDs from the internet about guitar teaching and music, like Troy Stetina And Michel Angelo Batio lessons, and I think you canīt expect how much hard to download these in Iraq, hoping for have a real guitar to start practice on them, every day I play them on my PC, I die to do all this awesome stuff, frankly I have a guitar made in China but Iīve reached the point where I canīt go farther itīs hurting my fingers.

Why I canīt get a job that I love, go to the cinema to see my favorite movies, having fun at Christmas times and Halloween, or go out in the middle of the night with my wife to buy donuts we even donīt know how it taste but weīre sure itīs really good, why canīt my wife complete her study and became an engineer, she had left college because the rode is too danger, our freedom are died, I want to make her dreams come true, she always tell me that she want to join a martial arts gym, play piano or ride a bike… yah sheīs a kid I know.
I want to simply walk on the street and nothing threats me and go anywhere I want anytime, or when I feel blue simply take my guitar out and set in a peaceful place playing, go to Metallica concert and see James Hatfield and Kirk Hammett shredding on the stage and went crazy along with them or see the living legend Ozzy Osborn.… Just tell me the truth is it so hard for young man in my age to live these wishes.

What can I do to get out of this hell, few days ago I talked to friend who live in Florida, he told me maybe I get that chance if I get a job with USA military because he did, I thought about it so many times and frankly I worked As an interpreter for one day back in 2004 but when I got back home I found my mom dying because she was so worried about me and this had me to quit, I donīt want death to be my salvation, and I just had enough of this piece of earth and those people, and there believes, Iīm not like them and I never been, why....why this life I want to live Free I wanna taste freedom, help me to find a way "I know there is someone can make my miracles come true" please donīt give me the chance to throw myself to certain death give me the chance to live give me life, Iīm done I just canīt feel my soul cause death is getting thicker and thicker in the air, I canīt carry on anymore I want to have The chance to feel life as it meant to be, not this one I forced to live it all these years, help me please pick me form this liven nightmare this hell Baghdad īDied Cityī.

I promise I wonīt let you down As soon as I start my real life the new life that you give me.

Help Me

[LEFT][RIGHT]Hey wolfate,

First let me say, wow what a touching story (seriously). Now as for your options, the easiest thing would be to find a nice American woman, and marry her, I believe that online places would be a good place to start looking. Another option is find an American company that will hire you for your skills, this is possible, but not easily achieved. Finally may I suggest checking out the Green Card Lottery, each year USA government gives out over 50,000 Green Cards (that allow you to legally work in USA).
Hope this helped a little and good luck...[/LEFT][/RIGHT]
