Salma Rahin, second from right, and her family who fled Afghanistan one year ago and resettled in Broomfield.,

Salma Rahin is an Afghan medical student who has resettled in Colorado. Her father was killed in a bomb blast as they tried to escape Kabul a year ago. She is one of the refugees being helped by Broomfield's Resettlement Task Force, led by city councilwoman Heidi Henkel. Then, the story of a Ukrainian cobbler living in Colorado Springs.
