A group of Los Alamos residents, in an effort to promote a lasting peace between the people of Afghanistan and the United States, have initiated a project called the Afghan Sister Village Project.
Members include Bob Fuselier, Dick Honsinger, David Trujillo, Emily McGay and Sam Gardner, Jr. Their goal is to foster understanding between the people of an Afghan village and the people of Los Alamos and Northern New Mexico.
Modeled on the sister city projects that developed from President Eisenhower’s hope of connecting the citizens of the U.S. with those from other countries, this group has established the following four goals:
• Establish direct, personal communication between the people of Afghanistan and those of New Mexico;
• Seek to recognize, understand and respect Afghan customs and ways of life;
• Provide the means for our children to learn about Afghan children’s customs and ways of life; and
• Offer our available talents and resources as needed and if requested.
Members of the group have been fortunate to meet and come to know many interesting people during their efforts to connect with the people of an Afghan village.
