Radical Muslims?


Ok, so not everyone in Afghanistan is a Muslim. But, everyone in Afghanistan should have the right to skateboard. On that note, check out this story from the NY times about an individual named Oliver Percovich, a guy in the process of opening up a skateboarding school in the city of Kabul. From the article:

"Among those who look forward to his visits is Maro, an elfin 9-year-old girl who was terrified of skateboarding at first. “It gives me courage, and once I start skating, I completely forget about my fears,” she said."

It's not a new story, but worth the read if you don't already know about it. Thanks to everyone I know for sending me a link to this.
