Promoting Educational Opportunities in Pakistan

By way of al Jazeera and the Peace and Collaborative Development Network, I watched one of the most powerful videos on Pakistan that I have seen in a long time. < http://www.internationalpeaceandconflict.org/video/video/show?id=780588%... >

Watching the video, brought up memories of traveling through hundreds of small villages during the years I lived in Pakistan. It is a very moving story that has many, many angles, regarding what needs to be done over the next decade in Pakistan to achieve a peaceful and prosperous society.

I would like to encourage my friends on this platform to spend 25 minutes to view this video, and let me encourage you to post your thoughts after you have viewed it.

My thoughts focused on how limited the reach of governments can be. It also made me wonder where the aid money that my country is giving to Pakistan goes. I must work to advocate for change.
