“This is a letter I was sent from a teenage girl in Afghanistan,” Jolie wrote at the time. “지금 바로, the people of Afghanistan are losing their ability to communicate on social media and to express themselves freely. So I’ve come on Instagram to share their stories and the voices of those across the globe who are fighting for their basic human rights.”
편지에서, the young unidentified woman detailed how she and many others were living in fear, expressing “all our dreams are gone.”
답으로, Jolie — who is a former U.N. goodwill ambassador, and who has worked with refugees in years past — wrote, “It is sickening to watch Afghans being displaced yet again out of the fear and uncertainty that has gripped their country.”
“To spend so much time and money, to have blood shed and lives lost only to come to this, is a failure almost impossible to understand,” 그녀는 덧붙였다. “Watching for decades how Afghan refugees – some of the most capable people in the world – are treated like a burden is also sickening. Knowing that if they had the tools and respect, how much they would do for themselves. And meeting so many women and girls who not only wanted an education, but fought for it.”
Jolie then noted that she would remain active in her fight to aid the Afghan women: “Like others who are committed, I will not turn away. I will continue to look for ways to help. And I hope you’ll join me.”
