Several of the Afghani students commented that they are thankful for US intervention and would like to see continued and greater support from the international community and the UN Security Council, in particular. Several statements included, "We relate our freedom to America," and "We want the international community to be present in Afghanistan." Some students shared that they have some very good teachers in their school, but must sit on the floor, as they lack sufficient tables and chairs. They also do not enough science equipment and other supplies. The Afghan people are also anxious to work toward rebuilding their country. Mr. Culbertson from Von Steuben Area 1.
