The Sun: If we rebuild school in Now Zad and give children a future, we can do it anywhere…

    Rebuild a school in Now zad is done an hope to childs and to country in general.
    It imply that other school may be rebuilded and many hope be done.
    The childs are the men of tomorrow and then a new generation, a new people, that will be free, will have culture and possibility to frequent school.
    A special duty, made by a military force, that enhance the human face of war: it is itself and on itself a hope, a concrete hope and a construction of a people whose past culture is big and testified on several terms.
    Thanks Claudio Alpaca
