“I think the word that clearly defines the younger generation and also separates them from their parents is ‘globalized,”

– Reza Aslan
Author of God, Globalization and the End of the War on Terror

Picture yourself, a sheltered youth, bound by the laws of your governing society and nothing more.  It could be your family, it could be your political figureheads.  It could be the guy with the AK 47.  Or…it could be the stereotype.  Yes – that one that would ensnare us all in its primitive categorization of culture and ethics.  If your world was viewed inaccurately by outsiders, and if you yourself had become labeled as a stereotypical figure for your given demographic, how might you react?

One group of young Afghani Muslims are fighting back against the wave of categorization and, according to this article I found on CNN, they are doing so by way of social communicative technology.

I’m so proud
