Narrated version with more about why I was given this award for writing on Substack and working with the State Department

I read my new story—A Heartfelt Gift from Those Left Behind in Afghanistan Arrives in the U.S. — aloud. I explained how the award came from a man hiding from the Taliban who got it through multiple airports and FedEx to me.

I also talk about why I was given this gift for my work here on Substack to tell the stories of the allies left behind in Afghanistan and for asking my former colleagues at the State Department for help.

What do you think about the way the U.S. withdrew from Afghanistan and left behind the people who worked for our government?

Do you know of any job openings in Norfolk, VA to help one Afghan build a better life for his family?
