On March 14th, in a symbolic gathering to show sympathy and compassion for the people of Japan, several young Afghanis got together at the Bamyan center in central Afghanistan to express their support. In this gathering of community members, young boys & girls, and journalists, a three article resolution was read aloud:
"With regard to human values and emotions, we share our heartfelt sorrow with the victims of the recent catastrophe.
As the government and the people of Japan have put a lot of effort into the reconstruction process of Afghanistan, we also announce our readiness for any possible help and support.
We ask the government of Afghanistan that, based on its capacity to do so, to support and help the victims of the recent catastrophe."
I think the words on their banner say it best. Even if you feel like you can't do anything to help, your will always have your words. Sometimes, just saying that you are there for someone can help.
