I'd like for everyone to look back on the history of this nation and on your own personal history. We are only where we are because some people were willing to struggle, endure, and even die, so that we might have more freedom. I look at the war in Afghanistan, and I hear some people ask "why are we there?" To those people I say, do you really want to doom 1/2 a country to a life without the right to learn to read? Don't be fooled -- the Taliban as I write this are probably planning to blow up another girl's school. History will say we didn't care enough to free those girl's minds. It is a gaping wound in our world when we allow forced ignorance to rule. Please don't let it happen!
