While the media focus on poverty and chaos in Afghanistan, we have seen the building of homes and the opening of new shops, welcoming people. Despite the very slow recovery of this country from the pain of the war and emerging new threats, people are still praying and fasting and continuing their daily lives amid the sound of explosions.
According to Wikipedia, hope, a terminology of emotions, is the positive production of sentiment and is also the response to events related to life and other factors, such as environment.
In Greekmyth, hope is the last thing left in Pandora's box. In a way, hope means no surrender to any difficulty. That's to say, when a nation still believes in hope, it is inclined to believe positive changes will take place, even though negative incidents occurs frequently.
O, Kabul, the ultimate home of the great Emperor Babul, I wish you are always with hope, side by side and hand in hand.
