My partner, Sage, gathers true stories from around the world for her podcast. Today on her show, Fatima Farooqi tells the story of her family’s fleeing Afghanistan in to Pakistan, risking their lives by dressing in rags to sneak past border guards. I just listened to it and was totally on the edge of my seat. I know you’ll enjoy it as well.

the audio is not playing… 😵
Weird – I just checked it and it played. I clicked through to the page where Sage posted it and hit play. Maybe it’s just a temporary issue – I hope so!

heard it just now very inspiring… 🙁 sad too… its nkt fair but there is no option also…
I hear you. Also a good bit of perspective for me. Even on what I consider my worst days, I have things ridiculously good.
On the positive side, her family now lives in Toronto. Fatima was one of Sage’s students. So for them, at least, it was a happy ending.
yup.. it is.. ☺️
