From Janice Cook Newman: Just posted the first essay from one of my students in the Afghan Women Writers Project. It’s heartbreaking & lovely. Read it, and please help spread the word. We want to get these women’s voices out there.

“When I was child I wished to be a doctor like my uncle, who wears a white shirt and everyday checks on lots of ill people. But one day, all of my wishes were destroyed. It was the day the Taliban came to our country, Afghanistan…”

[And, from your editor, Laurie McAndish King: I’m experimenting with using Apture links in this post. If you click on Janice’s name above, there should be three related links. Try it!]

    Just discovered that the Apture linking, which works from the website, does not work from the RSS-feed newsletter. So you need to be here, on the site, for it to work. (Of course, you cannot read this comment from the RSS-feed newsletter, either, so it’s kind of a moot comment. But for the future…)
