Riverbend is the Baghdad Burning Blogger "...... I'll meet you 'round the bend my friend, where hearts can heal and souls can mend..."
River became famous and a book was published of her blogs.
Now River is silent. I'm worried that our River may no longer be alive. I sent River an email; I hope I get a reply.
River has posted every month consistently since 8/01/03 except for one lapse in August 2005. River disappeared for an "unannounced" blogging vacation for an eight week period.
I three days it will be 10 weeks since River's last post.
Rivers last post ended with these words:
I sometimes wonder if we’ll ever know just how many hundreds of thousands of Iraqis left the country this bleak summer. I wonder how many of them will actually return. Where will they go? What will they do with themselves? Is it time to follow? Is it time to wash our hands of the country and try to find a stable life somewhere else?
