There’s something about this video

… from a young Afghan “friend without borders” – Khamad:

He’s reaching out, helping that people will see him as a human being with a face, a story, a name. If his poetic soul touches yours, then follow up with this article about him.
Wars happen, among other reasons, because people like you and me decide to stop seeing others as neighbors. We obscure their names, stories, and faces, and put them under the dehumanizing category enemy. Perhaps in that light, we will no longer see Jesus’ words about loving neighbors – including enemies – as quaint and familiarly pious platitudes, but rather as the seeds of a peace/love/reconciliation revolution.
And if you’re willing to invest a few more minutes … here’s a message to us all from Khamad’s group of friends.
