What and why do we have to endure anything,
what does endure mean, do you know?
If you take a look at any dictionary you will
see that the meaning of this word is to tolerate,
undergo and possibly bear. But really when you think
about it if you are free well why would you have to
endure or bear anything other than something that would make you happy.

Operation Enduring Freedom and Afghanistan.
Afghanistan was once a beautiful prospreous country and how many of its inhabitants long for it to revert to those unique times, but they have resigned themselves to thinking that tis may be a long wait. In the ancient city of Herat is a graveyard where its illustrious citzens are interred and in this are local people gather for picnics every Friday. When they are there they visit a grave where in lies a young woman of twenty five years old and her name is Nadia Anjuman and the reason she is in this grave is that she wrote poetry. Under the Taliban this is not allowed and the mind boggling element of all this is that she was not killed by the Taliban but by her own husband, an evil evil man. You see the simple act of writing, leaving their homes women in Afghanistan could end up mutilated or dead so this part of the world is still rife with the persecution of women.
