The sound of hope under your wheels

About 150 schoolkids competed in a bike race in Fallujah yesterday. The course was a 5 km sprint across what was formerly known as “the most dangerous city in Iraq.” But violence is down in Anbar province by as much as 50 percent, and that set the stage for the race.

The winner, teenager Haitham Abdul-Razek, won $1000 and a trophy.

That’s a heckuva purse for a junior race!
