Koolaid called and we were able to talk for about 30 minutes. That was surprising — our other calls (only a couple) have been very short. They can’t go to the hospital for a couple of weeks and that makes him very sad; violence seems to be on the rise around him. The newspapers tell us as much and he cannot really talk about it much, but I don’t think Afghanistan is getting MORE stable.
Here he is with Gulnazim, a boy he has really enjoyed geting to know. He says they have no common words aside fromeach other’s names, but they play well together!
Toys, blankets, coats, kites, and other humanitarian aid sent to him will be distributed to these kids from the hospital. Email me if you want the address to send a box. Or even just a note to Scott. He could use some cheer.
