The War on Girls

        The image on the August 9, 2010 issue of Time is striking in many ways.  Eighteen-year-old Aisha, an Afghani, stares directly at the reader from the front cover.  She might be a beautiful young girl were it not for the hole in the middle of her face where her nose should be.  According to the subtitle at the bottom of the cover, her nose and ears had been cut off on orders from the Taliban.

Listening to the whispering pines

Hello. My name is Donna Cozart Pauley. Welcome to The Whispering Pines, a literary blog dedicated to my love of the written word. It is an eclectic collage of my life -- from my poems to my stories to my family to my pets to my causes to my photographs to my recipes to my love of teaching to my favorite literature. Please feel free to comment. Words are only important if they are heard or read. Just like those soundless trees falling in the forest.
