Should i just give up?.....continued....

Very True...."things will get worse before they get better"....similar is a human being's nature. For the past many months i have been thinking of "giving up" because i thought my struggles are not paying off. But as i reach to the peak of frustration, i see the tiny hands of "change" that i guess i have contributed towards, waving towards me that they need to be strenghtened.I dont have to tell here that life in Afghanistan is complicated or tough....but its as complicated and tough as we can make it. My dad always says that those who dont make their own principles have to obey other's principles. So if i have started the struggles for bringing hope to people's lives, then i need to continue and have more supporters that should take this struggle to a farther level.
With all the frustrations on the surrounding, i still see rays of hope for Afghanistan no matter how small. For an example, i had initiated a project of 5 young lawyers that in three months assisted 50 women get freedom from jail for the crime that isnt even in the law. Like escape from a violent home. Escape from home isnt a crime, but women who escape, often end up in jail for years because they are accused of adultery as well, while attorneys mostly dont find the man who is supposedly the partner in crime, and the women is put in jail for years. There are instances where she is raped and becomes mother of many kids inside the jail but who cares about them. My project of young lawyers helped them to get freedom and i assisted many of them getting settled in some orphanage with their kids, although it isnt a pleasant outcome. There are similar efforts that at least brings me the hope that things can change in Afghanistan for the better as well if we work hard for this country......
