STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO:

This photo was taken on a trip shortly after 9/11 via Uzbekistan into the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif (one of the reputed burial places of the cousin and son-in law of Muhammad) where Tajiks are a large part of the population.  Three girls curious about the foreigners in town stopped by for a look.  Little did they know how their world was dismantling around them, actually opening the way for more Light to come in.
