All blue-eyed people can be traced back to one ancestor who lived 10,000 years ago near the Black Sea. What many people DO NOT KNOW is that Europe was colonised by AFRICANS about 10K + years ago. Therefore, the chance of any African child being born with blue eyes has been spread throughout the continent since then as a recessive gene. "...the more you know."
Love this photo: Sharbat Gula (born ca. 1972) is an Afghan woman who was the subject of a famous photograph by journalist Steve McCurry. Gula was living as a refugee in Pakistan during the time of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan when she was photographed. The image was featured on the cover of the June 1985 issue of National Geographic Magazine at a time she was about 12 years old. Gula was known throughout the world simply as "the Afghan Girl" until she was identified in early 2002.
