The Oldest Iraqi Voter

Omar at Iraq the Model is liveblogging the Iraqi elections. Check him out here and keep coming back for updates.

An excerpt:
Muhaisin Bidairy Abdullah who was born in 1900 and I think he is the oldest amongst the voters came leaning on his grandsons and could hardly breathe with tears visible in his eyes…maybe because he won’t be able to attend the next elections.

Just think of the history this man has seen! His determination to be part of this moment touches me deeply.
