Two widows of 9/11 find solace & solidarity with women in Afghanistan


Susan Retik and Patti Quigley are two ordinary moms living their American Dream until both husbands are killed during the events of September 11, 2001. Rather than turning inwards, grief compels them to travel to Afghanistan and help empower Afghan widows whose lives have been ravaged by decades of war, poverty and oppression – factors they consider to be root causes of terrorism.

As Susan and Patti make the courageous journey from their comfortable suburban neighborhoods to the most desperate Afghan villages, they discover a powerful bond with each other, an unlikely kinship with widows halfway around the world, and a profound way to move beyond tragedy.
