The United States began bombing Afghanistan 26 days after the 9/11 attacks.
The invasion led to the fall of the Taliban government, but the 10 years that followed have been marked by ongoing security challenges and slow reconstruction.

Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith, reporting from Kabul, takes a closer look at how some Afghans are overcoming their challenges.
