I read an article on Huffington Post dated October 2014, that stated from 2001 to 2012 6,488 American troops were killed in Afghanistan and Iraq.

I believe those number speaks volumes on the current and ongoing problem with intimate partner violence in the United States. I would be extremely surprised if a student in our classes hasn’t been affected by this in some way. I am an IPV survivor, when I was 18 I met my daughters dad.

The described acts of violence of the Taliban were not fictional events that Hosseini created but were rather based on complete truth.

Women were stoned to death in public for small crimes such as singing, according to the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan. Hosseini used the ugly truth about Afghanistan to help the western people understand the hardships of life that the people endured under the Taliban rule.
Malala was featured in a BBC documentary, won Pakistan’s National Youth Peace Prize, and was nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize. All this press drew the Taliban’s attention, and they made a plot to kill. On October 9, 2012 a man stopped the bus Malala was riding on the way home from school and said, “Which one of you is Malala? Speak up, otherwise I will shoot at you all” (Pettinger).
