The sound of fire, the fear of being kidnapped, the unpaved streets, the naked structure of an empty class, the journey of an all-day work carrying the loads of masters on a pair of painful shoulders, the voice of innocent and hungry kids… is the sign of a new morning in Afghanistan. This is one of the thousands of typical journeys that have been passed by every single Afghan person during the last three decades.
During the decades of war and bloodshed, Afghanistan was abandoned and destroyed. People were not allowed and are still not allowed the freedom of expression. The control of the media by the government, the strict Islamic roles imposed by religious leaders, and the establishment of sharia law by the government and other incidents all led me to leave my homeland suddenly.
