Kids of Kabul

Kids

 

This book of interviews between Deborah Ellis and the kids of Kabul is heart wrenching and eye opening. We all hear of the injustices of Afghanistan rule, especially towards women and children, but hearing firsthand accounts of children really gives the reader a new perspective.

Americans are very privileged and we take our education possibilities for granted, at least I know I do. I complain about how much homework and studying I have to do each semester; the children of Kabul want to learn so eagerly that they will study in secret!

The Taliban movement is over, yet many people still believe in their arbitrary ways, viewing education as unnecessary.
