16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Hope out the window

This photo was taken from the broken and no longer functional classroom overlooking the beautiful Panjshir Valley. Afghanistan still struggles with a high percentage of illiteracy between its population and in the midst of all the unrest, schools have been a big target for insurgents. The broken window overlooking a beautiful valley is an example of the value education holds in the country's progress and hope for a better and peaceful future in the midst of all these dark times.
