Letters to My Dead Father

Guffran was 9-years-old when her father was gunned down in a Baghdad street in 2006 at the height of the war. Now 16, she still writes letters to her father, just as she did when he was alive. NPR's Kelly McEvers reports.

In 2006, NPR's Anne Garrels shared the story of Guffran when she was 9-year-old girl, and has lost her father five months earlier in a carjacking.
