Afghanistan is probably best known in the West for its poverty, oppression, terrorism, and ongoing conflict. It’s not untrue, but its not all that it is. Against this backdrop, are the dreamers and visionaries. Artists, musicians, innovators, activists, media moguls, and politicians. Just like any other country – the dreamers and the free thinkers are often those whose stories are quieter than the stories of violence and anger that shout more loudly. That doesn’t make them less powerful.
