An Afghan nomad kisses his young daughter while watching his herd in Marjah, Helmand province, Afghanistan. In southern Helmand province, one of Afghanistan’s deadliest battlefields, angry residents say 11 years of war has brought them widespread insecurity. They say they are too afraid to go out after dark because of marauding bands of thieves and during the day corrupt police and government officials bully them into paying bribes. Development that was promised hasn’t materialized and the Taliban’s rule is often said to be preferred.

A belt from ca 1680, symbolizing a treaty between the north American Turtle Clan and William Penn, who said “We meet on the broad pathway of good faith and good-will; no advantage shall be taken on either side”.
Not sure how well that worked out… Also, seems like the belt was copyrighted in 1905.
