Poem written by an 11-year-old Afghan girl

One of the best articles I’ve read all year. Here’s the link
This break from school has been a nice way to catch up on reading, writing, and just enjoying myself. Sometimes I wish I spent more of the time I had always doing this!

I am getting my itch to go TRAVEL. It is driving me crazy, it’s been 7 months since I have taken a trip. I want to go somewhere! It doesn’t have to be international, or even out of Texas but I am craving to go somewhere new! I am dying to go camping sometime soon…as soon as I can convince hubby.. lol
