The story linked below is so sad, yet also so uplifting. I am so proud of the young girls in this story who brave ludicrous taunting and violence doing something we simply take for granted here in the U.S. - going to school! How many of us have children (daughters especially) who complain about school? I know my daughter always did. She was not a school person. Yet the young ladies in Afghanistan risk life and death just to get their education. And their parents are to be commended too. Strong people!!!
