Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

No Different

No Different

Rakia’s story is one of deep sadness. She lost 6 children to hunger and sickness while in Africa. One of those children, a toddler, died in her arms while traveling from Somalia to Kenya. Soldiers looking for money or jewelry realized she had none and cut off the child’s foot. He bled to death before she reached the refugee camp. In the refugee camp she tried to start her own business making donuts, but she was often beaten up and had her food taken. When she came to America, she was hopeful for a better life and dreamt of work to help provide for her family, but a baby born with special needs has taken precedence over that dream. Her evaluation of her situation shows her sadness, “Life in Africa, life in America….no different.”
