"As long as we are still alive, we can have everything later, we can start from scratch." —My Nguyen, Kinglake"I hope to feel safe in every part of Afghanistan, not just in my room." —Sabrina Omar, Kabul Kinglake had one day of disaster with far-reaching effects; Kabul has endured 30 years of war. In this remarkable collection of young people's writing, students from schools in Kinglake and Kabul share their stories of resilience, courage, and hope. In doing so they illustrate the remarkable healing quality of words and illuminate what connects us as humans. This is not a book of remembrance or a book that desires to shock, it is a book about what is best about human nature.
