    Thanks Stacy, this takes me back to a time when the world was a more peaceful place, before the insanity of radical Islam.
    When I would be traveling out of my rural environment, I would see people that dressed strangely to me, and they spoke in language I couldn’t understand, but they didn’t seem to be a problem.

    How sad it is to think that these women, who look so happy and free in this picture, are now most likely “second-class citizens”. I wonder if the people of Afghanistan let sharia law move in easily, or did they put up a fight? God help us if we ever let tyranny move here, by dictate of an over-reaching government, or by islam! FREEDOM!

    Julie, tyranny has moved in here, just not at near the level in Muslim country, but we are slowly getting there.

    I liked the post. I’ve been thinking about getting to know Afghanistan that’s one of the few countries I haven’t met. I’ve done several trips around the world. But I confess that one of the things that prevents me from visiting this country is precisely because the information I have is still a place with many wars and that makes me afraid to visit. One of the most amazing things I find is the buildings and temples of this country.
