ABSTRACT
This article presents photographs and comments of Afghans who were asked how America has influenced their lives. Several were critical of the waste of money by the United States and the failure to invest the aid in schools and other infrastructure. Some of those photographed were grateful to America for the positive changes made by driving the Taliban from their cities and neighborhoods and for helping women to gain freedom.
