    From our heroine
Maryam Khail
    These memories of
Afghanistan are dedicated to three people
    who loved Afghanistan
with all their hearts:
    To my beloved parents,
and to Farid, my “big brother,”
    I miss you every day of
my life.
    *
    From author Jean
Sasson
    For every woman in
Afghanistan who silently suffers
    unimaginable abuse at
the hands of the men who
    should love and respect
her.
    I’m sure these women
wonder if anyone in the world cares.
    I care.
