Thousands of refugees run away from their homeland country when they are in danger and seeking for a better life. For example, according to Upfront’s latest magazine issue, “Ethiopia’s Refugee Crisis”, we learn about how many people ran away from Ethiopia and into neighboring places, such as Sudan. Many of those being children, crossing alone.
Not only are they children, but entire families as well, and even pregnant women. They live in very bad living conditions, with little to no food, and in very dirty conditions. Many witness very traumatizing things such as the death and murder of family members, etc. Not only are these people putting their lives in danger but they are doing it in order to escape from poverty and to have a better life.
I am shocked by your post “ Ethiopia Refugee Crisis” because I did not know children and pregnant women crossed borders for a better life. It’s very impressive how little children know what’s good and what’s bad for them.
One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “ not only are these people putting their lives in danger but they are doing it in order to escape from poverty and to have a better life”. I think this is sad because families and children have to put their life in danger in order to get a better education, and a better environment to live in.
Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I think this a very interesting topic and I like how you include why they cross the border because so many people can relate to this. I would like you to continue talking about this topic.
