Bread and yogurt – and healing
The Director of the Mozan/Urkesh Archaeological Project has been very ill this summer, and on this date, having just celebrated her 80th birthday, Marilyn and Giorgio were summoned at 3 AM for a mandatory evacuation from their home due to the fires that were threatening their home in Los Angeles. They were able to return four days later and their home was fortunately untouched.
For her birthday, she received two moving greetings from Mozan. Muhammad Omo says in a video: "I am sending you bread and yogurt from Urkesh. All the people in Tell Mozan send their greetings and say that you should come back again.".
The other was from Amer Ahmad: "To Umm Iskandar ... (we) pray for your healing, that we are also in pain nowadays ... but we are determined to be strong, to be beside each other ... very soon Syria will be healed and also Umm Iskandar the same,
then Mozan will tell you it is the time for your return, the time to hug Mozan, everything in Tell Mozan is missing you. The palace, abi and the temple are missing you, Tell Mozan's children are waiting their mother.".
