Afghanistan

My life in the decade of war: Sean Alexander

To mark the 10th anniversary of the war in Afghanistan, we have been collecting photo stories from around the country showing how people’s lives have changed over the decade the US has been at war. This series will feature some of those stories. You can see a slideshow of the stories and share your own here.

 

My name is Sean Alexander. Born in Martinez, CA, raised mostly in Pittsburg, CA. I remember growing up in the small town of Pittsburg with the hopes of taking my baseball talents beyond amateur to the MLB. Only 11 years old ten years ago, I was MVP of my Little League baseball team. Now, ten years since the war began I’m fighting for my moral dignity that is to lay down my arms and stand for peace.
