Love letter to friends on Jeju Island, from Dr Hakim and the Afghan Peace Volunteers in Kabul

Dear friends on Jeju Island: Sung Hee, Paco, Silver, Sister Stella, Dr Park and many others at Gangjeong Village,

I lived in a gorgeous agricultural village in Bamiyan Province of Afghanistan for seven years and like yourselves on Jeju Island in South Korea, every morning, I woke up to a window scene of ‘heaven’.

No eyes would believe that wars had brought ‘hell’ to occupy this land.

I imagine you walking on the simple yet unpolluted paths in Gangjeong Village and that if you stopped for a little breather, you’ll be caressed and cared for by the tree shadows with their sunlight, the chatty play of the neighbourhood children, and the wafts of floral perfume dancing by.

Neither you nor the villagers I lived among would want to lose your aviary-like homes to Greed.
