JF:

I was in Afghanistan a month before the WTC attacks and we took horses to a very remote pass in the north to meet a group of nomads. Getting closer to a large black nomad tent pitched between boulders an old man appeared and fired shots over our heads. We soon realized he was trying to scare his dogs away from attacking us. I climbed off my horse to shake his hand, and he gave me a huge bear hug like I was his long-lost son. In that moment I felt our cultural, linguistic and religious differences disappear, and it was just two humans acknowledging their humanity to each other
