Afghanistan: "Happy New Year"

Time for the latest monthly Afghanistan update from Arthur Chrenkoff:

Considering how much snow fell on Afghanistan this winter, wishing for an equal bounty of peace, security and prosperity might be somewhat optimistic. But even a moderate precipitation of good and stable government and economic growth will guarantee that this war-shattered, impoverished and traumatized country continues its slow and often painful--yet at the same time very inspiring--ascent from the nightmare of the past 25 years of its history.

Below are some snapshots from that journey that no longer attracts much media attention, but one that, nonetheless, matters a lot not only to the Afghans themselves but also all those around the world who believe in the redeeming power of freedom.

Happy New Year
