There is always a need to help our neighbors, locally, nationally, and internationally
Robinson, TX (PRWEB) December 22, 2016
In William A. Mitchell’s new book, Baylor In Northern Iraq During Operation Iraqi Freedom: Journeys to Dohuk For Higher Education, Democracy, and Voices for Survivors, ($15.99, paperback, 9781498487245; $7.99, e-book, 978149847252) readers will experience a remarkable story of how Baylor University educators and staff devoted their hearts and expertise to help international neighbors during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Within the pages of this deeply moving book, volunteer educators, both American and Canadian, journeyed five times into and out of Iraq to provide help with higher education teaching in a democratic society with the rules of law, and to capture oral histories of the human resilience and courage of Iraqi Kurds.
“I hope that the reader will sense our unselfish motives to step up during human made tragedies and help in any way possible.” There is always a need to help our neighbors, locally, nationally, and internationally. This story is different because of the unique challenges of sending a busload of civilian academics into a war zone and negotiating the threat verses our personal and university risk assessments.
