HERAT, AFGHANISTAN, FEBRUARY 5, 2017: An Afghan boy pushes a heavy wheelbarrow as he transports firewood along a roadside. ***** I say good-by because I know they tap your wrists, In the dark, in the silence, day by day And all the blood of you drop by drop, And you are old before you are young...You never come back. - Carl Sandburg *****

I say good-by because I know they tap your wrists,
In the dark, in the silence, day by day
And all the blood of you drop by drop,
And you are old before you are young… You never come back.
– Carl Sandburg
