    DEAR MS.KRISTA
    PERHAPS OPENING THE DIALOGUE OF RACIAL DIVIDES AND CULTURAL DISTANCES
    IS SOMEHTING THAT YOU YEARN FOR; OR PERHAPS YOUR SLICK USE OF FANCY TERMS WAS INTENDED TO DISTRACT THE VIEWERS FROM THE RAW REALITY THAT THE PICTURE REPRESENTS; QUITE SIMPLY PUT, THE ROTTING STENCH OF THE TALIBAN PRESENCE IN AFGHANISTAN. THIS PICTURE IS A PAINFULLY FRANK PORTRAIT OF LIFE UNDER SHARIA LAW AND THE EVERYDAY OPPRESSIONS THAT WOMEN ARE OBLIGED TO CONFRONT.AISHA’S FEARLESS GAZE INSPIRES HOPE, AND HER STORY IS ONE OF COURAGE IN THE FACE OF HORROR, DEFIANCE AGAINST PRESSION……HOWEVER DID YOU MISS THAT PART, MS KRISTA..?
