Accept christ as your savior so he can save you from what is to come. You can't be safe in this world because the news says there's a way they can fix this They will lie to your face and say its all better now while not truly caring about us God won't let us down

    As an afghan, I wish these cruel and heartless taliban could just stop and be human for once. I wish I could go to my country and live there in peace. It's such a fun and amazing country but because of tallibs, people don't even feel safe in their own house. I miss my country and I hope that one day, Afghanistan can become peaceful for us to live in it freely. I remember during my vistis to afghanistan, I was in a car and we passed by this certain road called "Sarake Now" (literally means "New Road" aadhjhga) and just five minutes after we passed from there, we looked back to see an explosion. I remember being in so much fear. When I was at my cousins house, there was an attack on a place right next to their apartment, and we could hear the sounds of the guns firing. I remember thinking it was over. I wish afghanistan can find peace one day inshallah. Afghanistan is the best country ever, if it wasn't for the taliban.

    I have a co-worker from Afghanistan. He was out on a sunday, grabbing some ice cream with his family. He and his youngest brother were walking to the ice cream wagon away from his parents and second brother to get their ice cream, and that's when bombs went off. That was the last time he saw his mother, father, and other brother. One day i wish for him and his Dari brothers to go back and live in the Afghanistan they deserve.

    8:50 interesting that Afghans like other cultures to wear their traditional clothing while visiting, but do not wear other cultures when visiting or living outside of their country. This video was bringing me pain, Afghanistan people are amazing but the old religious sect is trying to send them back to medieval times. Then they smoked hash. " Get high before you die" "yala yala lets go"

However day-to-day i feel like people can be so miserable, no time for anyone else, americans can be very self-centered. These foreign countries the people seem so selfless, they take interest in everyone around them. I wish i could see more of that in America.

    Whats interesting is that some of the 70% of the country that tourists will never see is some of the most beautiful places. Natural fresh water springs, snow capped mountains, Alpine forests, and tiny villages nestled next to roaring rivers, and hospitable people that never get any tourists. Even the Afghan Army and the Taliban rarely interact with them.

    This video had me in tears. But it also made me want to cheer in celebration for the courage, the optimism, the love that defines these people, despite the wars and oppression. It's a celebration of community, family, friendship, faith (even if it's secular faith in humanity), and joy.
