In Afghanistan, around a bomb crater, we cleaned & took a stand


By Hakim and the Afghan Peace Volunteers

Thank you for your encouragement after the glass-shattering bomb explosion last week. We are grateful for your friendship and the daily actions you take for peace.

Last Friday, we wore our blue scarves and cleaned the streets around the bomb site area.

“We didn’t intend to go to the bomb site. But as we had already planned a day to clean the neighborhood streets, it became quite natural to clean around that area and along the street.We recognize the pain caused by the bombing, both the loss of lives and injuries, and also the damage to the environment. We ask for healing. We want the place to be healed. ” The Afghan Peace Volunteers ( APVs ) during the Global Days of Listening conversation on June 21st, 2013
