We thank our friends from America and Palestine who join us in this Bamiyan Buddha Peace Light-up video, while we live in the midst of the 92000 Wikileaks representing just the tip of our inhumane fire-berg.
The Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers ask that you would join them for a daily one-hour vigil over 6-days ( from Saturday the 31st of July 2010 to Thursday the 5th of August 2010 ), to ask the leaders of the world, “Why not love?”
The state of Afghanistan is fatally un-sustainable.
Morality, intellectualism and democracy are dying in Afghanistan. Humanity is dying.
Everything needs to change but since we can only change ourselves, doing small things like keeping this vigil is what we the ‘nobodies’ of the world must do.
15 year old Abdulai says, “We usually feel alone. I think that my country is on fire and that we are all withering on the inside. We wish for your friendship in this vigil to put out the fire, for only a resolute love can give us some hope. I pray you would believe that we need that hope right now.”
Love and peace,
Abdulai, Hakim and the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers
