Afghanistan has had a history of dramatic unfortunate events that have affected Afghans’ quality of life. The country is very poor and has an unsettled government with little opportunity for the people. Nature has not been a friend to Afghanistan with earthquakes, droughts, and severe weather conditions. Afghanistan was not a country known to everyone. But now the entire world is watching as the country struggles to exist. The purpose of this paper was to reveal Afghanistan’s people and their history, through my discussion of the past and current events in Afghanistan.
