In the morning and afternoon on campus college students sit together to talk. Slowly walking by their side, some people were warmly greeted.

Though the university is so not strict withstudents' punctuality and attendance,the students who do not live on campus come to school to attend their courses do so every day at the risk of losing their lives. The calm attitude of students towards frequent,ongoing terrorist attacks nearby affects us deeply. As long as the students are dedicated to learning, we will always be there teaching them, no matter what the situation becomes.

Compared with the young people in other war-torn regions and countries, the students studying at Kabul University are promising and lucky. Since they have grown up during the post-war period, they have the chance to study in such a beautiful university. They can freely talk to students of the opposite gender. Enjoying the convenience of the internet, they are well-connected globally through Facebook. And they share their personal lives and emotions with people around world who they have never met in good English, so they become more tolerant and peace-loving than their parents. They can both fully develop their individuality and pursue their dreams while observing traditional rules. We have seen hope and vitality of this country from the young people.

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.
