Today we learned that four of the six children who were killed by a recent suicide bomb in Kabul came from the Skatistan Skate Park. Young afghanis are dying for change and this tragic loss is an understatement. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ollie, the Skateistan team and all the children at the park.

In the words of Khoshid “If you are scared you end up doing nothing and without doing you cannot achieve anything. But if you do things, all that can happen is you succeed or fail.” These children brought positive change to their country because they decided to do something, and it mattered.
