Nadia Anjuman: a fitting memorial

My small posts here and on Blogcritics about the horrific killing of the Afghan poet Nadia Anjuman have drawn a strong reaction, particularly on Blogcritics, where two poets have left their personal feelings in verse.

Gary Lawless (I think this is him here) has emailed with a very constructive suggestion, that as a memorial to her, donations be made to the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA). One of its main programmes is providing basic education for women and girls Just $60 (now £35) a month will support a full-time teacher working in Afghanistan.
