A rose within a field of thorns

It has been said, it is Afghanistan’s misfortune to be sandwiched within a rough neighbourhood, and when you see the regions history this is hard to dispute. Years of conflict has plagued the country and the Afghan people with violence and destruction, but  yet there remains a hidden beauty within the country and within it’s people.

The world too is often shown the images of  violence within Afghanistan and the news focuses on the presence of international troops and war against the Taliban, but this should not be the visions which define a country.

I came across this short video entitled  “A Day in Afghanistan” by  Lukas and Salome Augustin which captures this beauty, please watch and see another side to Afghanistan.
