We all know and have witnessed the extent of damage a country such as Afghanistan has seen in its lifetime. Civil wars have ruined the face of the once beautiful country but it failed to break the spirit of resilience in the lovely and innocent Afghans. Many have been victims of the war(s) and Ahmad is one of them. This gentle boy unfortunately lost his leg in a land mine explosion in the Logar region of Afghanistan. The International Red Cross- renowned for its humanitarian efforts in war struck and underdeveloped countries around the world has an orthopaedic department. They recently fitted a prosthetic leg for Ahmad and the joy he felt had no bounds. He immediately broke into a lively dance circling and dancing in his blue Payraan. His happiness can truly be felt and his smile has lit up the hearts of hundreds on the Internet. His video went viral, with many people touched by his innocence and watching him exude happiness in the face of his recent adversity.
Moments such as these often put things in perspective for you. What you may find to be your worst day could be a lucky day for someone else in a different part of the world. We have a lot to be thankful for and this short clip of Ahmad’s reminds us of that. I wish I could join the boy and dance along with him and hug him, wishing him all the best in life because his spirit is not broken and I hope the world becomes a better place for people surviving in countries with severe conflicts. Now please watch the video and break the replay button!
