What a mess. Driving along and a burgundy car runs the light, causing me to swerve, but my back tire clips the front end and sends me into a spin, almost causing me to roll over and flip. Luckily I was able to wrestle it back onto 4 wheels after slamming into 2 wheels back and forth. Came to a rest on the sidewalk and the car drove off. I’m lucky I didn’t roll over and thankfully I was wearing my seatbelt. Then William came and changed the tire so I could limp it home. Going to put it in the shop before I drive it again. I can only hope it isn’t that expensive. Now I have 3.5 hours to shower and sleep before going into work. Ugh.
What are your feelings about the way Taliban ruled Afghanistan?
I dislike them. But lets not talk about them.
Lets talk about the main problem:
The people in Afghanistan.
You know what makes me sad? Seeing my people (not all of them) uneducated, seeing women killed for being infertile, seeing little girls and boys kidnapped and sold, seeing people shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ while they can’t even read the Qur'an, seeing a woman stoned, beaten, run over by a car and burned because a self-titled ‘Mullah’ spread the false rumor: “she burned the Qur'an”, seeing a widowed woman begging on the streets so she can buy her kids some food, seeing a widowed woman selling or killing her kids and herself because she can’t take care of them anymore (financial reasons). There are so many issues in Afghanistan.
What Afghanistan needs is education.
The people need education especially Islamic education. They’re like “I’m Muslim!!!” but they don’t act like it (again, not all of them), men there don’t know the rights of the woman in Islam due lack of Islamic education. A lot there is culture, few is Islam. I don’t know how to help Afghanistan when it’s the culture and the people itself who don’t try to make it a better place
