¿Qué pasa en la clase de Español IV?
On the month of April, as a class we covered tons of topics. However, among all those topics, some of them made us think “Wow” or “ Dang”. One of the topic was La guerra civil en Salvador. In this chapter we learned a little bit of the history of Salvador. The history included all the horrible stuff that the government did in order to stay in power, which ended up creating a society that no-one ever wanted, “ Poor vs Rich”, At the end due to corrupted government a civil war broke up and many of them tried to leave the Salvador to US to have a new life. To connect with this event, we also watched a documentary, where bunch of kids from Salvador tries to go to US without their parents, Most of them were at the age of 10-15. In order to go to US, they had to ride a train, which they named “ La Bestia”, because along the lines of traveling, it kills a lot of people. And people from salvador still rides la Bestia because they wanted better life and more opportunity. I could understand if it was adult, however most of them were just little kids, who had just hit their puberty.
People rode this train knowing the danger that lies ahead of them, but not knowing how hard it is to get in US, because most of them ends of getting caught at the border, and they end of going back where they belong to.
Kids who were forced to fight in Civil war, they had no other option but to follow or else they die or their family member.
Kids riding the Beast
Kids who are riding the train, even though they don't what lies ahead of them, they are willing to take the risk to get better life.
