I have a dream
It has been over 50 years since Martin Luther King delivered his famous ” I Have A Dream” speech on August of 1963. Many things has changed in the U.S. Even though many people know USA as the land of free and a superpower, many disagree that right to order of assassination of U.S. citizens by the current president, arbitrary justice, warrantless searches and war crimes has changed the face of the US that we knew. Plus over 48 million Americans live in poverty, according to a special report by the Census Bureau. This photo story looks at the US citizens that still have a dream.

Afghanistan: A Beautiful Land at War
Afghanistan (meaning "land of the Afghans") has been a strategically important location throughout history. A communist coup in the late 1970s overthrew the established regime and led to the invasion of Soviet troops in 1979. Roughly a decade later, the Soviet Union withdrew, condemning Afghanistan to a civil war that tore apart the nation's last remnants of religious, ethnic, and political unity. It was into this climate that the Taliban was born. Today, war-torn and economically destitute, Afghanistan faces unique challenges as it looks toward an uncertain future.
