This is the new America? Some of you reading this may feel like this doesn’t concern you. You’re probably white and straight. Just remember this; Afghanistan was once a thriving and promising place. In the 1970’s women could drive a car, go to college and wear whatever clothing they wanted. Men could choose their career and aspire to do something more than learning how to use a gun. Then the Taliban came into power, and year by year they rose using extreme tactics to control people into believing what they believed in. Now the women are sex slaves with no rights and little Afghanistan boys dream only of war and decay.
