The Woman on the Cover

The cover of this week’s Time Magazine is incredibly powerful. I saw it at the airport and couldn’t get it out of my mind. A woman with her nose cut off by the Taliban as the poster child for the carnage and cruelty in that war torn land. Not sure if it posed a question or just an answer with its title: What Happens If We Leave Afghanistan. It certainly makes you think about the atrocities, especially directed at women, who until now have had little voice.
