Hope (February 12, 2016)

Ishmael's dad once told him "If your alive, there is hope for a better day and something good to happen. If there is nothing good left in the destiny of a person he or she will die." In my opinion this quote has a strong meaning. It can have many meanings like, if you're still alive it could mean that something there is still some hope for something good to happen. It can also mean that you should be happy for having another day and that it could be a signal.

How Ishmael escaped death (February 15, 2016)

Ishmael escaped numerous times from death. He escaped from the rebels who wanted to kill people. He ran to the forests with many other people who also tried to escaped, some managed to escape others didn't. Ishmael escaped to the forest by himself, he lost all of his friends. In the forest he also had to survive hunger, and almost getting attacked by wild pigs. After all he found six boys, he traveled with them, someone was making rumors about the "seven boys" and in almost every village they tried to kill them. But after the villagers saw that they were only innocents kids they let them go.
