Progress, however small is still progress. Some day young Afghan girls will easily go to college and return to help their country. Some day, the suffering of the past will serve as incentive for all young Afghan citizens to help build their country.
This was in the local news because 3 of the 6 women graduated from Roger Williams College in RI. Not news to bash the right so I am not sure this story makes the national news. No soldiers die here so for sure this story doesn't make Mikey's day....so here it is...a good story...does anyone careor should I have written it in a manner to bash Bush???
Sahar is one of three women graduating from Roger Williams University on Saturday who came to the United States as part of a scholarship program started after the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan following Sept. 11.
The program, called the Initiative to Educate Afghan Women, provides a free college education for Afghan women, who under the Taliban were not allowed to go to school after age 8.
Sahar, 20, a political science major, Arezo Kohistani, 24, a business management major, and Mahbooba Babrakzai, 21, a major in finance, are among the first women to graduate from the program, which requires them to return to Afghanistan after their studies.
