Pursuing Education for Girls in Afghanistan is Only the Way of Change
Charles M. Sennott in his article “Giving Girls Wings” from The Boston Globe tells us about changing of a 61-year old mother’s fed-up life to a cheerful life by helping Afghan children. Charles states that Sally Goodrich found herself a miserable, dull, and a sick person after her 33-year old son Peter died in the September 11, 2001 attacks of the World Trade Center, but she found back her joyful life while she began thinking about building a school for 500 Afghan girls in Logar province in 2006.
I agree with the idea of Sennott about changing of a miserable life into a pleased life only by giving to other. As Sally Goodrich said, “For the first time, I felt Peter's spirit back in my life." It is hardly true that by helping oppressed people make us feel breathing in peace environment once again; particularly, while taking an action against of our enemies like the Taliban. Moreover, this is a very impressive article because it tells about a powerful statement of a mother against her son’s enemies. This article visibly informs us about cooperation of a empowered woman with other feeble women in a war torn country like Afghanistan. This article is very praiseworthy for me because it shows that there are people, who care about Afghan girls like Sally Goodrich. In addition, this article shows women’s courage in a warring country like Afghanistan. For example, in 2007 on April Sally made a trip to Logar province, which is one of the most unsecure provinces. She made this trip to observe her school and her the students in her school. I have seen pain, sadness, dead bodies of young, old, and children in front of my eyes. So, I personally admire her courage, and I am grateful for her this inspirational job for girls in Afghanistan. After reading this article, I figured out that taking concrete steps for pursuing success in Afghanistan against oppressors is only educating the female members in Afghanistan. I hope one day, I will be able to sacrifice my entire life for the oppressed people around the world, especially for my Afghan sisters and brother
