Image of un-welcome

When we were first advised to put up razor wire around our homes here, i resisted. It stood firmly against what I believed: welcome, inclusion, openness. But Afghans I spoke to think razor wire is a good idea: privacy and protection are high values here. Alongside that, getting robbed, kidnapped or worse are real risks, and have happened to people we know.
I still oppose it though.
