I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

The G7 is preparing to have an emergency meeting regarding Afghanistan. It’s uncertain if Canada will be attending, due to the Federal Election. I say there is no more important time to attend and discuss the abandonment of human rights and women’s lives than now. The decision of the USA to leave Afghanistan the major determining factor in the conquest by the Taliban. Is the USA going to help them or keep out of civil wars and unrest?
