The Silence is Deafening
After a week of sending emails and receiving no replies from the Afghanistan National Olympic Committee, I finally received a response. Rohullah, the Swim Chair at the Afghanistan National Olympic Committee replied to the email I sent yesterday. All of my emotion was building, especially when I saw the email pop into my inbox. I was so excited when it came in. I was hoping for something positive like “yes, let’s move forward with this” or “yes, we are excited about the possibilities.” The response I received was a one liner that said he will contact me soon. How anticlimactic. I guess I will just have to be patient and wait for a response. After all, Rohullah does not speak or write any English. He probably needs some time for someone to translate what he would like to say?
