VT’s anti-bullying workshops focusing on original monologues of student definitions of “home”, “the other” and the “refugee” are being presented today at 11:51am-12:34pm in the library of Saugerties High School, 132 Washington Avenue, Saugerties, NY.
The reason that I made the decision to leave my country and my dear family is because here in this country there are many opportunities to be a successful person. I came to this country to find a better life, everyone wants a better life, a calm life, without fear, without apprehension. In my country there are many young boys who are killed because they are in gangs. These are some of the reasons why Hispanic people immigrate to this country to get away from problems that might cause them to die. And those of us who are here do not want to do anything bad, we are here to look for a better life.
