We are all interested in the real Afghanistan. The Only Candle is a timely collection of ten gripping true stories, behind the scenes, that illustrate the miseries and atrocities suffered by a basically peaceful nation, invaded and overtaken by the Russians thirty years ago and still yoked today by a communist regime. The communist invasion started a reign of attrocities; homes and villages were destroyed; and over two million people were tortured and killed.
For the past three decades, millions of Afghans have had to make a choice -- join the Russian Army forcibly under threat of death or be ripped from the arms of their loved ones and leave their long established homes painfully and tearfully, Incredible miseries and difficulties have been encountered by Afghans trying to get through deserts and mountains to the borders of Iran and Pakistan Some who were financially able eventually came to Western Countries.
There are over five million Afghan refugees who fled from Afghanistan. It is heartbreaking that even today, the majority of Afghan villagers struggle through a miserable life without adequate resources for food and small comforts. As you read this, small children are mutilated by unexploded mines as they trot innocently along their village paths.
