Election Day, Afghanistan

Today’s the day here in Kabul, and across the country.

If you’re the praying sort (and I hope you are), ora pro nobis– for the brave folks who will stick their necks out to vote, to work the polls, to protect the polls, to clear the roads, to watch the crowds, to do their utmost to make sure that it’s a fair, clean and quiet process.

Keep your fingers crossed.
