Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's one of the most surreal websites I've ever seen.

Do you like to have fun? Would you like to dance on rainbows? You can, you know! Everyone loves a rainbow. People rush out of house to see them. Whenever they appear everyone stops what they are doing and says:"Look at the rainbow! Isn't it beautiful?" We all want to share its beauty with someone, preferably someone special. It is a moment of magic, though sadly fleeting. We would all like to catch them and keep them and in a way we do: in our hearts.

Dancing on a rainbow is really very easy. You just have to believe that you can. You have to believe that when you leap up there you won't fall through. That is called faith. But faith isn't easy to find and even harder to keep.

I have been dancing on rainbows all my life and have fallen through more times than I care to tell you. The loving hands that helped me leap on the rainbow always help to pick me up after I crash completely to smithereens on the rocks of this world. If there is a mistake or a bad decision or an ego trip or a way to worship the things of this life I have found them all and crashed on their rocky surface. They do not provide the joy that my dreams assured me that they would. These worldly things have not been alluring enough to keep me from picking myself up and leaping again to regain my rainbow and the loving hands have always been there to welcome me back no matter how bad I have been. It's just too much fun up there to miss a minute... Stop for a moment and think how wonderful it is to always be welcomed with unquestioning love.

Which I'm sure will be a huge comfort to Afghanis everywhere.
