nobel cause for 3,000 youths
i think this is a really important article, it's hard to ignore the voices of some of the most honored people in the world right now.
"Shirin Ebadi was the first woman in Iran to become a judge; her work for women and children was recognized by the Nobel Committee in 2003.
'I am very sorry about the sad events of Sept. 11, but I wish that the United States of America would have built one school in Afghanistan for each of the victims' instead of going to war, she said. 'We would have seen the number of terrorists decrease then in 10 years.' "
