The War and Beauty Contrast of Afghanistan That You Don’t See in the News

Ever since October 7, 2001, the land of Afghanistan is suffering constant change: the war started, people die, buildings explode, landscapes get altered. The following showcase depicts the overall images of before and after the war on the lands of Afghanistan. 50 impressive pictures: the beauty of nature and peace given to us as a precious gift and the disasters and sadness people create, in their search for power and glory. Given the money spent in this war, we could cloth, feed and offer education for several nations, we could make people happy, instead of tearing up their lives. This is not bravery, this is thirst for power. Let’s make a difference!
