Such photos always bring back happy memories, formed during times predating the looting of the museum and before the Taliban destruction of the Bamyan Buddha statues.

Located between China and India to the east and Europe to the west, Afghanistan was at the commercial and religious crossroads of civilizations in Central Asia. And it still is.

Many of us are encouraged by the increase in education offered to and avidly taken up by boys and girls and their parents in Afghanistan – real progress made over the last ten years despite the war. If you ever want to participate in supporting a small but ongoing and very successful endeavor to educate a child, a family, a community – go to aynieducation.org, Ayni Supporting Education in Afghanistan, formerly known as Journey with an Afghan School. I have supported them for some years and know the founder, and the current Executive Director and receive first hand reports from the schools and their principals and teachers.

Tashakor. Thank you.
