Quotes from the news wire:
He was talking to me about he’s terrified for his own life and he feels so helpless and doesn’t know what he can really do from there, he said the night before, the Taliban had come to his house and they broke a ton of windows in his neighborhood and they also broke the windows in his cars. He said all he could do was shelter in place because there’s really nothing he can do.
He said it was heartbreaking to see so many Afghans trying to leave like that, i know that because this is an ongoing crisis, the rules are changing every day. He had mentioned that he has a passport for which I think will be beneficial for potentially bringing him here. But if he can’t get to America, I’m looking into seeing if he can come to the UK or any other country in the EU.
They’re saying what is such a beautiful country is actually going backwards in time, my mom has a couple family members that she has been talking to and she’s told me that they’re scared to leave the house, and if they do leave, they’re not allow to leave unless they have a male guardian with them. So that indicates what it's like to be a woman in the country right now.
We need to put the politics to the side for a little bit and focus on the lives, because the past 20 years has been all about politics, and now that the Taliban has completely taken over, it should be about the Afghan lives that are at stake here. Our top priority should be helping them instead of bashing any political leader that’s been involved in this process.
Since everything is happening so fast, there’s been a lot of misinformation that’s spreading, yesterday, I listened to a Taliban debriefing, and they said in Farsi, which I was able to translate on my own, that they want all the interpreters to stay and they won’t be seeking revenge on them. But then I’m logging onto Instagram or Twitter and Facebook, I’m reading these news reports about how they actually did end up killing these interpreters.
