In the Shai-i-Nau neighborhood of Kabul. An American who lived in Kabul in the 60s wrote,
"Shari Nau was the street of Kabul
like the Champs Elysee of Paris, it was crème de la crème."
"Her life, all her dreams and ambition, had been destroyed. My children and I are glad that she is alive. We do not blame you for what has happened, you too have suffered greatly. But no one has ever explained to me why my home, in the middle of a residential area, nowhere near the military, was bombed."
Mohammad's son, Biyuqra, 15, added
"The Americans are angry because they had one day of war. We have had 23 years of it."
