Unfulfilled Wishes Of Marzia: Diary Of Education Center Explosion Victim

(MENAFN- Khaama Press)

Marzia, a young girl with small hopes and dreams, was killed in a suicide attack at the Kaaj education center. She wrote in a diary, which has drawn a great deal of attention, a list of her innocent, childlike wishes.

The list of Marzia's unfulfilled small wishes was found in her diary, which was discovered after the explosion. Marzia took her dreams with her to the grave. However, Marzia's wish list is widely shared on social media in an effort to realize her unattained wishes.

Here is what she called“little but dearest wishes”:

Wish number one: Meeting Elif Shafak
Elif Shafak reacted to this little wish of Marzia. Elif Shafak, the well-known Turkish-British novelist and author, joined the Afghan Twitter campaign and tweeted Marzia's name and photo of her wish list. Marzia loved to read, and“I can't forget her story,” Shafak wrote.

Zia Qasemi, an Afghan poet and writer, also wrote for Marzia:“I will die of your sorrow! You are not here to see that Elif Shafak, your favorite author, posted for you and mentioned your name. We also promise not to forget your name, our dear Marzia!”

Wish number two: Seeing the Eiffel Tower up close
Marzia wished to see the Eiffel Tower up close, someday. Now a number of Afghan journalists and activists have proposed to inform the management of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the French capital, to have it illuminated for Marzia, and share her name, picture and wish.

The goal of this group of activists, which includes Khadim Hossein Karimi, Farahnaz Forotan, and a number of other social media users, is to have the Eiffel Tower briefly illuminated in Marzia's memory.

Wish number three: Eating Pizza in an Italian Restaurant
Marzia may have read about Italian cuisine and dining establishments in books. She wished to experience eating pizza in an Italian restaurant.

Wish number four: Biking and listening to music.

Wish number five: Strolling through a park at night.

Wish number six: Learning and playing guitar.

Wish number seven: Visiting at least 6 beautiful countries around the world.

Wish number eight: Writing a novel.

After purchasing Elif Shafak's book, Marzia wrote on one of the pages of her diary:“Today I realized how much I like being in the library.”

Marzia was a student at the Kaaj Education Center, the site of a bloody suicide attack that claimed the lives of many other students, including Marzia, who carried their unfulfilled wishes to the grave.
