On Aug 15th, the day Kabul fell to the Taliban, Basir and his family made their first attempt to get into the airport and onto a plane. It would be nearly a month before they escaped into Pakistan. Over the next weeks they would be beaten at Taliban checkpoints, endure crushing crowds and be threatened and sworn at by soldiers from around the world.

    Dear Robin Young and Here and Now,

    Waking to NPR and our morning paper, there was paltry or non-existent
    coverage of today’s 10th anniversary of our invasion of Afghanistan. I was
    grateful to hear Michael Sheridan talking about the Fruits of Our Labor set
    of documentaries on Here and Now, putting a human face on a people plagued by and coping with this war that seems to never end.

    Best,
    Susanne Slavick
