These are the faces of women from half way around the world who are afraid.
And, unless you have been there, it is unlikely that you may know what is happening to them.
As this is a new Blog, my intention is not to begin with alarming or shocking information.
This story was in my email several days ago and I held off writing about it for a bit.
Now that this Blog has been initiated, I feel that the time is right to share this.
How do you feel about this?
It appears that a new law has recently been passed in Afghanistan that would allow,
or at least not punish men, for abusing their wives, children or sisters.
It is very difficult living in this country, to even imagine that this can still be happening,
anywhere, but it is.
I feel only slightly embarrassed to be continually whining about the fact that the ERA still
has not passed here in Florida after learning about this.
So, here are the stories, and they have been written about in many, many publications.
Please tell me what your feelings are about this?
