One of those Stories

Posted on October 5, 2012, by , under Blog, General.

Was waiting in waiting hall of Kabul International Airport, to receive Mom. She was coming from Herat City to attend a marriage party and stay with me for a while. There were lots of people, families, young guys waiting for their flight time, some of them were waiting there same as I for their family members, and friends.

I was sitting on a chair and listening to music on my ipod, and I was in a mess J, was still sleepy even I walked after I got up from bed and left home towards Airport as it is very near to our house. But still my eyes were puffed and I was feeling dizzy a bit, started walking in a park and looking around, there you could see so many people sitting in that park some of them with their luggage and some without.

I found a bench empty and walked towards it to sit and wait while enjoying the park’s atmosphere, after a minute a couple came and sat next to me on the same bench they were eating chips (lays), I guess the girl asked her guy to offer lays to me and he insisted to eat a bit from their lays and I did (Thanks you you guys were sweet). After half hour a flight landed in airport I guess it was from Iran and people started coming out from the terminal, there was a guy with his luggage coming out as he reached this park there were family ran towards him and hug him tightly, tears were all over their faces and his mother (I guess) hugged him after few seconds she fainted in his arms. They took her to the shades and brought water for her, her son was crying for her like a baby.

As soon as I saw this my tears came into my eyes and my throat became heavy, I couldn’t looked at them and suddenly I started thinking of that this is one family who are lucky they got their family member alive. There are families who get their son/daughter/grandson… their dead bodies from Iran.

If there is Allah, I believe there is then I pray and beg him “stop testing Afghans” it’s too much every time I go out of my home I see people that deserve a lot more than what they have now.

Oh My God this picture I will never forget not that this is the only one that I see or happen but there are thousand families that daily faces this situation, their sons, daughters goes abroad to gain a penny for the family. It is the story of every Afghan who is not able to get job here because he doesn’t know anyone in higher order of government to help him getting a job, who is poor to have proper education, and he is that person who goes immigrate to other countries and work hard to get something for his/her family.
