Here are some beautiful photos sent to me by a former student. These are children in an afghan village.
They are holding gifts we sent them. (to thank us!) Only because time has passed and i doubt any taliban are reading this, do i feel ok in posting them. I post to make real their life!
Real children who live under threat and oppression each and every day. While my diamond shoes are too tight and i had to wait in line for a table at coco-bolos yesterday...
Please consider-- the girls would not be able to learn to read, write or fly a kite! under taliban rule. (The boys would not be able to fly a kite either.) If you have not flown a kite lately, or had your female child read you a story, consider your blessings and get on with living fully.
I wish i could post all the stunningly beautiful faces she sent, so intelligent and sweet. Check my homepage, we will bury them there somewhere...
