Although this picture was taken in Pakistan, it truly sums up what the war in Afghanistan is all about. The Taliban and their allies understand what school and education represents to their vision of the region and to their power. Which is why they blow up schools, kill teachers, beat parents and throw acid on to the faces of school children.

These girls have a courage most of us can not fathom. Every step forward is another step away from the darkness, no matter how small that step. If these girls learn to read and write, thier lives will improve and the chances of their children getting and education increases as well.
