Home Safe

Friends Larry Kershner, Doug and Jody Mackey returned safely from three weeks in Afghanistan. If you've not read their blog, I recommend that you do so. You will get an unvarnished view of the hope and despair that is Afghan society these days.

The most notable image from their trip for me is their account of joining the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers picking up litter in Bamiyan Peace Park (September 24). Other Afghans would be surprised because "Westerners never pick up trash here."

Most disturbing image:
Last night two of the local police armed with rifles walked into my room without knocking. They just looked around and then left. Again they didn't appear menacing. Very curious.
