I know it is hard Parvana, but keep trying to keep your family alive. You are the only one in your family who will be able to dress up like a boy to go and get food and money for your family while your father is in prison.

FATHER I am so proud of my daughter Parava. She comes with me every day to help me walk to my blanket where I write and read letters in Pashtu and Dalrifor other Afghans. I know she is also coming with me to get fresh air, but she is very helpful

MOTHER I am so angry at the Taliban. Why did they break in to our room and take my husband. He has done nothing against the Taliban. How will we survive now that the only male in our family is gone. None of us women can go out without being beaten or put in prison as well.

Hey Parvana, I am so proud of all you have done for your family regardless of what could have happened to you with the Taliban. You knew that you were the only one in your family who could safely pretend to be a boy and even though you were scared to do it, you did. The courage you demonstrated when the Taliban soldier came to have his letter read was amazing. I would have been so scared that he would realize I was a girl not a boy. Your family would have never survived with out your father with out all that you did for them.
