Afghan Quote of the Day

What occurred today in Afghanistan was amazing, if not a miracle. Go to the link to read a good story, but here is my favorite quote:
"This is a country that has suffered greatly over the years," said Abdul Mateen, a Pashtun taxi driver, after casting his vote in the city's diplomatic district.

"To be able to cast my vote and participate in the future of my country - this is a dream to be cherished."

When was the last time you heard someone frame a thought that way...."..a dream to be cherished." We take a lot for granted here in the US.

May God Bless the Afghan people and their baby democracy.
