About "549 km sleep only in Irak"

549 km, is the distance between the capital Baghdad, in the center of Iraq, and the city of Basra, to the south. It is also the distance traveled in the subconscious to reach the dreams of the child sleeping in all Irakis. These dreams are too difficult to reach because cries and flames haunt their minds.
