A Life Revealed

A Life Revealed | Geography and Social Studies | Scoop.it
Seventeen years after she stared out from the cover of National Geographic, a former Afghan refugee comes face-to-face with the world once more.

 

The original cover is one of the more famous National Geographic photos of all time, and yet the woman in the photograph has not lived a life as though millions of people could recognize her eyes.  This is her story.

The picture of the Afghan girl from National Geographic is a photo that will forever be a part of my life. I remember seeing the photo when i was little and how beautiful she was. Now seeing the same girl in the same photo 15 years later has aged more than that as you can see in the photo. It goes to show the life of a refugee Afghan woman is not a stress free life. It was a life filled with hardship and pain.

But by looking at the photo we can see the beauty out of all the pain.

This photo is in Rome, where there is an exhibit based on NGS photos, and in Las Vegas as well. In both places the lines were long to get in.

Israel - Gaza conflict

Israel - Gaza conflict | Geography and Social Studies | Scoop.it
Israeli airstrikes began November 14, following months of Palestinian rocket fire into Israel.

 

"Monday, the top leader of Hamas dared Israel to launch a ground invasion of Gaza and dismissed diplomatic efforts to broker a cease-fire in the six-day-old conflict, as the Israeli military conducted a new wave of deadly airstrikes which included a second hit on a 15-story building that houses media outlets."  This photo essay shows 34 powerful images that are emerging from this deadly conflict.  If students need some background to understand who are the major players in this conflict, this glossary should be helpful.
