Paradise is where we women should go!

Posted January 12, 2013 from Afghanistan

Today when I went home, I saw 4 pairs of shoes in front of our door; entered the house and saw four beautiful girls sitting with my mom. One was badly injured and complaining on how his father beats her and forces her to marry an illiterate guy who is ready to pay $16,000 to the father for marrying her daughter. My mother as a woman right activist, showed her and other girls the way out, so they can file a complaint and her office-the Afghan Women Network in Herat will follow and defend from their rights. Among them there was one tall and really pretty girl who seemed to be married. She was able to take her divorce because the man who she married was a drunkard. The other girl was happy though she was engaged with a married man, because her fiance let her go to university and pursue higher education. After listening to their problems I told myself: If we believe that there is a life after death either in Hell or Paradise; Women will definitely go to Paradise because they have already experienced Hell in this world!

Adults and parents have the responsibility to show to the children that life is beautiful on earth. Paradise is here. Unfortunately, we live in an imperfect world where exploitation of fellow human being is allowed by some cultures. Your mother is like a candle lit in the dark. Her bravery is an inspiration to many girls and women in Afghanistan. Hope that there'll be more of her. You're one lucky child for having a mother like her.

Huggs and prayers from the Philippines,

Paulina

Dear Paulina,

I am absolutely agreed with you. We are here to enjoy the beauties but most of the time what we hear are unfortunate stories. Thank you for the kind words.

May God keep you and your mother blessed through out your lifetime and beyond. Good work will never go unrecongnised. There is always someone to see. The witness of your work in you and that keeps you in paradise.

My prayers with the lovely brave 4 girls and I pray their burden be lifted soon.

With love Amei

You are so fortunate to have a mother whose actions are so inspiring. Already, you have witnessed the ripple effect of her love, compassion, respect and strength. Now, four more women will pass on her teachings to their daughters who will share them with their own children. Your mother and you will go on to touch thousands whose faces you will never see and who you will never meet. It's a powerful legacy you can be proud of. Janice
