Just two months ago, Sharifa, delivered this address to her class in Kabul. She was allowed because the new government allows girls to attend school through the 6th grade. Now there is uncertainty since it is said that the Taliban government does not allow female students of 7 to 12 to attend. Because of Sharifa’s ethnicity and existing security concerns, she, and thousands of other young girls, cannot continue their education outside. She and her family fears for her safety in attending any classes now. Sharifa’s teacher tells her she has “A” grade, but existing economic troubles keep her family from paying the fees to get her official record. However, Sharifa and her family are not deterred as the family fully supports and is proud of Sharifa in her self-education efforts.
Her voice is clear, but the text to assist with her words:
Today I want to explain the narrative of Kabul.
Unfortunately no one interested to hug a disheveled body but Kabul embraced millions of disheveled bodies including children, men and women, so she has billions of word for explanation , but there is no ear to lesson to her voice. as she placed millions of disheveled children, men and women right on the heart of her chest . she generously is listening to the story of thousands children who don’t understand why their parents stopped story telling ; she is listening to the voice of thousand mothers who lost their beloved on the defend redoubts; she is lessening the story of fathers who raised thousands youths to stand with them shoulder to shoulder for making better future but they lost their lives on fights and also on the sea and land borders in search of brighter future; she is listening to the story of thousands girls who can’t pursuing their education due to tight restrictions posed by New political regime. Dear friends, she is the only city on the world that carrying these much heavy untold sad stories, so I think God sterilized father and mother of Kabul after she was born . That is why I call you to listen to the voice and story of our beautiful Kabul.
