"But I fear for him...the Afghanistan of our youth is long dead, kindness is gone from the land, and you cannot escape the killings, always the killings. I dream that God will guide us to a better day. I dream that my Son will grow up to be a good person, a free person, an important person. I dream that flowers will bloom in the streets of Kabul again, and music will play inside of our houses, and kites will fly in the skies. And I dream that some day you will return to Kabul, to revisit the land of our childhood. If you do, you'll find an old faithful friend waiting for you. May God be with You Always, Hassan"
