The Iraqi man and his dream

I was driving an Iraqi man to his doctors appointment. While driving through the forest he told me how beautiful Sweden is. We talked a little about Sweden and suddenly he tells me the story of how he decided to come and live in Sweden.

He dreamed of peace for his family but it was nowhere to be seen. So, whenever he could, he started search the internet for a place to go. He had two criteria; It must be far away and have no war. He looked at maps, studied information and there it was – Sweden.

“Did you know, he said, Sweden didn’t have a war for two hundred years.” This really excited him. And at the end of the ride he concluded, with a smile, that the beauty of Sweden is a bonus. The main goals were reached: Far, far away from Iraq and no war.
