German person in a rather restless state of mind. Restless times make that necessary. I blog about the things that move me. Sometimes more moving, sometimes less. I am interested in peace, love and what makes things work.

→ Fawzia Koofi, Afghanistan's first female parliamentarian


“One day the Taliban will probably succeed in killing me. I am resigned to this fate. But for as long as I am alive, I will not rest in my desire to lead my people out an abyss of corruption and poverty. For this reason, I am running for the Afghan presidency in 2014. I was born a girl who should have died. But if God wills it, I may die having become the first female president of a country I love and a country that will finally see all of its children—both boys and girls—born into peace and security, not violence and war.”- Fawzia Koofi, Afghanistan’s first female parliamentarian.
