This is a picture of a Canadian soldier in Afghanistan. I think this shows a lot about the Canadian identity and how we stand up for what we believe in. Canada believes that Afghanistan should have a more stable and secure government, so we went and are currently helping them achieve that. Canada is trying to to change Afghanistan so it is safe for everyone and no longer a "safe haven for terrorists." Canada is trying to improve the cooperation between Pakistan and Afghanistan because we believe that everyone should feel safe and secure. We are willing to go to other countries and help them feel safe, a feeling that we may take for granted each day. I think that Canada feels as if everyone should have a sense of security, a feeling that is not common in Afghanistan, so we are helping them create a country based on the principles of rule and law, which can make Afghanistan a more secure environment for people.
