On Afghanistan, Taco Bell, and Simi Liu
At War With The Truth (Washington Post)
I have so many feelings about Afghanistan - but not a whole lot of knowledge.
This piece showed me how much more there is I didn’t know I didn’t know.
If there’s one thing that unifies America, it is that we are all at fault for what happens now to the countless Afghani people that fought alongside us, for Afghani women and girls whose hard-fought freedoms are lost.
It’s on us. Republicans, Democrats, the media, and us who stopped paying attention because it wasn’t convenient.
Code To Inspire is a nonprofit I was honored to work with in my last company, and Fereshteh is beyond inspiring and continues to fight for a free Afghanistan. If you donate, please forward me your receipt and I’ll match your donation.
