We ALL can make a difference!

Op-Ed in the Boston Globe:

Shock absorbers for US, Pakistan

Why don’t we try a surge of humanitarian work in Pakistan instead of sending drones & CIA agents?

Ask any Pakistani what the problem is and they will say education & infrastructure. If you ask them what they are doing to help you will be amazed at their philanthropy.

They go on to suggest that we “Educate those around you and make your elected officials accountable for what they do”. I’ve been travelling there frequently for over 20 years and have witnessed this first hand.

With the help of vibrant American/Pakistanis here in the US, we can create a political movement of diplomacy and humanitarian assistance that will truly change the situation.
