WorldView: Audacity of Hope on the Home Front

Some promising developments lately on the home front of the Afghanistan conflict:

This week in Toronto, we witnessed an unprecedented Pashtun-community-organized rally against Taliban violence in Pakistan.

On the UBC campus in Vancouver, CASC is now actively recruiting, and organizing events like the screening of “Faith Without Fear“, happening at the Vancouver Planetarium Theatre.

And in Ottawa, an American president who has pledged to send another 17,000 troops to support the international effort against the Taliban is the recipient of much love and admiration, instead of pickets and masked protesters.

Good news, kids.
