Lest We Forget.....
Nasim's blog: Afghan Lord.
His flickr page: Afghan Lord's Photo Stream.
His Farsi blog: Shared Pains.
His Linux blog (in Farsi): Afghan Linux.
Sometimes it's easy to forget people who are truly speaking for rights and freedoms when we are distracted by the extreme theatrics of U.S. elections. There's a young man in Afghanistan by the name of Nasim Fekrat who is telling the story of his people from inside the zone. It's an amazingly honest, non-biased journey in the life of the average Afghan and he's risking a lot doing it, including his life.
This young man used to blog under an alias but now is speaking in his own voice, and hopefully with the backing and guarantee from Yahoo, Google, and Microsoft he maintains the right to do so.
Lest we forget.....
