BEIJING (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump arrived in China on Wednesday looking for assist to rein in North Korea, telling the reclusive state’s chief he was placing his nation in grave hazard by developing nuclear weapons.
I am taking Khaleda with me at the moment on the aircraft. I assume I talked about before that she is the little woman who has Thalassemia and is coming to the States to receive mandatory remedy. Her mom says she’s 11 yrs. old although she seems 6 or 7. She’s fairly small and frail. She speaks no English. I speak slightly Dari however I’m certain we will manage somehow. I worry concerning the long layover in Dubai – virtually 4 hours. We don’t board the plane until midnight. She’ll be exhausted, I’m quite certain. I am going to try to persuade United that she wants 2 seats so she will lay down. We’ll see how that goes. We land in Washington, DC in the early morning the place Khaleda will probably be met by her host family. Then I will return into the airport and head for Boston and Thanksgiving Day with my household.
This is a large step for the songbook challenge. I left the assembly feeling I had allies in Afghanistan who really supported this project and were helping to move it forward. This feels reassuring to me. I will, after all, continue to work on figuring out funding sources and will proceed to reprint the primary songbook since there is clearly a necessity. Once the second guide is printed, hopefully by late spring, early summer season, I will work on funding the manufacturing of that as properly.
Much ado occurred yesterday, minutes after I casually remarked that Vaheed Kaacemy (the musician who’s partnering with me on the Songbook Project) was coming by to choose up some songbooks on his strategy to Ariana Television. Within minutes, the women in the workplace have been racing round in a flurry, cleansing up the lounge, dusting, straightening up, laughing with great pleasure. Cookies were arranged on a platter. Plastic flower bouquets, left over from my go to to Kunduz, were swept up able to be presented.
Anecdotal accounts level to some success. There have even been financial savings. When villages within the Jurm Valley wished operating water, for instance, they did much of the work themselves, with help from an engineer. A personal contractor with hyperlinks to a neighborhood politician had requested triple the value. (The villagers declined.) Even such modest steps haven’t come easily. Jurm presented many obstacles, and it took a improvement group with decided native employees to jump-begin the work right here.
