Promise of brighter future: Marawara elders gather to learn Afghan constitution

 

Regional Command East - Combined Joint Task Force - 101 Kunar Province, Afghanistan – More than 100 elders affected by the recent operations in eastern Afghanistan’s Kunar province gathered together in the Shura hall of the Marawara district center July 10th to discuss the Afghan constitution.

Less than two weeks after coalition forces and Afghan security elements rid the district of a large group of insurgents, the meeting was an unprecedented show of security and support for the Afghan government. Meshrano Jirga member Rafiullah Haideri, Kunar Governor Fazlullah Wahidi and Marawara District Sub-governor Sayed Mehboob Pacha joined numerous provincial-level and district-level government officials at the event.

“You have to be like a bridge between two sides so people can cross — telling people not to fight and encouraging them to go to the government,” said Amir Mohammad Safi, tribal affairs advisor to the governor, during the meeting.

Blackberries grown in Tennessee are available at the Montgomery County Farmer's Market or you can pick your own

Nashville, TN – Once upon a time, brave souls donned their armor of long sleeves, long pants and bug repellent, charging into chigger-infested weeds to fight fierce, thorny briars which defended a glossy and tart-sweet treasure: blackberries.
