    You bring up such important points dear Kayhan… it took me well over 25 years to really get that i was in an abusive early marriage… one which i had left two decades ago but wasn’t ready to feel its oppressive imprints… as you say, at some point i realized i’m trying so desperately to run a marathon… yet, with broken bleeding feet. The work you are doing is amazing… and life changing… bless you !!

    Thank you for this post, Kayhan. It is a beautiful example of humility, the willingness to listen with an open heart and help your group find their own way to healilng. You remind me that people are their own agents of change, and while we can support the process, we cannot dictate it. Sending peace from Brooklyn, Carol

    Sometimes it is about the chicken crossing the road. Lay those eggs, girl. If you’re lucky, you’ll even see a few hatch.

    Beautiful and inspiring people! So important for us to see what this war is doing to people on the ground and help people here make connections to what our policies are doing. Keep up the great work, Kayhan. You are a gem.

    so many lessons to learn… even when those lessons are taught so far away…
    heart reaping stories… and at the same time, heart building…
    thanks and lots of love…

    Kayhan, Thank you so much for posting this healing artistic process. I am an actress/writer/activist wanting to learn and share these skills from The Theater Of The Oppressed movement. Do you recommend a particular trainer or are they all considered to be equally remarkable?

    Trying to think how more people can know about the power of your work and the experience of getting to know Afghans as fellow human beings, not wrapped up objects in news footage.

    I once saw an old, short documentary called “Walk In My Shoes”. As I remember, it had narration and photos paced to feel like a movie. Simple documentary. Just a day in the life of someone living in Harlem, getting up, going to work on the subway, coming home. I think sounds of life in the background. Maybe some dialog but I don’t think so.

    I can see your blog writings as narration, the photos put into motion, sounds, maybe some phone interviews with participants in Afghanistan who have phones. Or Skype if some have computers. Not much change to your blogs. Maybe just 20-30 minutes. Just a simple sharing of the experience in a way that can go on PBS on something like POV independent films. Or fly freely into YouTube in segments. Or sit on a website that links to people around the world who care about fairness and potential and fulfilled lives no matter what.

    Even though I remember reading “A Dream Deferred” in middle school, I think this is the first time I’ve felt the power of those words in my whole body. Thank you.
