She continued: ”I was on the border of Afghanistan two weeks before 9/11, where I met Afghan refugees who had fled the Taliban. This was twenty years ago.”

”It is sickening to watch Afghans being displaced yet again out of the fear and uncertainty that has gripped their country.”

”To spend so much time and money, to have blood shed and lives lost only to come to this, is a failure almost impossible to understand.”

”Watching for decades how Afghan refugees – some of the most capable people in the world – are treated like a burden is also sickening. Knowing that if they had the tools and respect, how much they would do for themselves. And meeting so many women and girls who not only wanted an education, but fought for it.

”Like others who are committed, I will not turn away. I will continue to look for ways to help. And I hope you’ll join me”
