I stopped in briefly to check out the powerful new interactive exhibit "Baghdad Streets" organized by PT Witte on Better World
Island (teleport SLURL). "Baghdad Streets" is an extension of the PT’s real-life-work "bringing
the truth of life in the killing zone of Baghdad" to the awareness of
as many people as possible. Walking through the maze (I recommend using mouse-view) brings you face to face with the reality of the conflict and its effects on innocent lives. You encounter real stories of people caught up in the conflagration, their daily frustrations, and steps you can take to encourage peace in the region.
PT has been connecting
students and teachers in Baghdad and New York City for four years via email. Excerpts of
these moving communications are at Better World Island as well as the project
blog at 121Contact.typepad.com. (Also PT Witte is the real life father of Mark Wallace of the popular metaversal blog 3PointD! )
