Good manners

Today, I visited the Karim Wasfi Center for Music & Creativity, also known as the Peace Through Art Foundation.
The center functions as a music school for children. But is also houses an academy for good manners.
Some of the pupils are giving a concert tomorrow, for security reasons the name of the venue where the concert will take place has to remain a secret.
There is progress in Baghdad, people claim, but the progress is sometimes invisible.
