CWN Editor's Note: As Taliban forces attack three major cities, the Sisters of Charity of St. Jeanne-Antide Thouret (Italian website) have declined to leave the capital city of Kabul, where they operate a center for mentally disabled children.

“Violence is the rule of law in Afghanistan, and the situation is getting worse every day,” said Sister Shahnaz Bhatti. “Blood flows in the streets as if it were water.”
