Chrenkoff - Afghanistan

The essential Arthur Chrenkoff reports again on the Good News From Afghanistan. Among the many items noted or linked is this one describing how a group of Anchorage, Alaska thirty-somethings started a project to build schools for girls in Afghanistan. The Chrenkoff reports on Iraq and Afghanistan have become a source of hope and optimism for me, and I'm sure for many others as well. The generosity and good faith of thousands of Americans and our coalition partners seems boundless, and it inspires. Chrenkoff's reports make clear just how many civilians are involved in these rebuilding
projects, working either alongside our soldiers in the field, or making their contributions from back home. Thank you again Arthur, for what you do.

While you're visiting Chrenkoff, take a look at this post too. Arthur blogs from Australia now but is Polish by birth, and he remembers the day 23 years ago today, when martial law was imposed in Poland by the Soviets, via Gen. Jaruzelski. I suppose that explains some of his passion for the democracy movement in Iraq and Afghanistan. Ya think?
