Afghanistan, Taliban, women, hopeless, war

Darkness.

Imagine being young,
Imagine being female,
Imagine you have a future,
Imagine being terrified,
Imagine men with guns,
Imagine hope being stolen,
Imagine being told how to live,
Imagine your freedom taken away,
Imagine hate wrapped in religion,
Imagine losing everything,
Imagine living in darkness,
Imagine having no voice,
Imagine begging for help,
Imagine silence.

It’s tragic for those Afghan women.
But now, imagine being left behind by your country when your president doesn’t have a clue as to how to get out of a war. Thousands of our own citizens are at the mercy of the Taliban, right now.

Sounds like a prison. It was the first thing that came to my mind. I have felt many of us around the world are in a prison (even though the bars and guns may be invisible) since the China pandemic has been let loose on the world. It is an act of war. We are at the mercy of those in power. God is great, He is in charge, my hope is in Him alone. This effects all humanity, not just women. Thank you for the post Vinny!

Thanks for sharing a vivid truth of our fellow humans. What’s happening in Afghanistan is terrifying. This could be one of us. I’m glad the U.S. is doing something to try to save as much but unfortunately many will perish and suffer. People don’t realize how luck they are to live in America and spared from what goes on in other countries.
