I came across this story today on CNN... Women in Lahore are trying to stand up to the Taliban... even through thought that the Taliban may just go ahead and bomb them if they organize!! The situation of oppression in this area of the world really grips me. Last year I remember hearing of the assassination of a female police officer right in her own yard.. with her teenage son looking on... She was the leader in the Kandahar police force and overcame all odds to rise to a high level in her career.. and the Taliban took her away just because she was a woman, just because she fought for what she thought was right and true. I cannot fathom how some people can harbor and harvest so much hate. I hope that the women and people of Lahore stay strong and stand up for what they believe in... the people of this area of the world do have a common thread... their passion... whether it be passion for oppression or freedom... most of them are willing to die for what they believe in.
