Insecurity and Violence

Artist Trading Card by a 7-year-old

In my country

El Salvador

Insecurity and violence

Grow

Bigger

Every

Day.

A wave of violence is unleashed

Over as little as 50 cents.

*

There is fear to leave for work in the morning

and

more

fear

To leave to return home from work in the evening.

*

The gangs extort.

The gangs assault.

The gangs rob.

The gangs kill.

Unemployment.

Violence.

Killings.

The gangs molest our civic tranquility.

*

Amid the violence and death

We are on the list

to

            be

            killed.

There is no possibility for

a

peaceful

sleep.

*

When we leave for work

in

the

morning

Only God knows if we will return home

in

the

evening.

Violence and death are everywhere.
