I received this great email in this listserv (Pashtun Peace Forum [PPF]) that I am currently a part of, and I felt that it needed to be shared on my blog as well. I am actually thinking of participating in this; I won’t get time to write an article or research paper, but I will definitely send in an art piece. 🙂
I am copying and pasting the email I received below verbatim, so, if you or anyone you know might be interested in this, please pass it on! Thanks!
