They Ransacked My Store

IMG_3559

I flee from Honduras.

I am a person of

Many years.

I belong to community organizations

To help

To Protect

My Neighbors.

*

For 10 years I owned

A small clothing store.

The delinquents

Robbed

My

Store.

2012.

*

I took a loan

To continue

Working.

Three years later…

…they ransacked my store.

Again.

Leaving nothing.

*

Meanwhile…

The police in my country

threaten

community

groups

when

we belong to

“the Wrong Party.”

*

The power is united in 3 groups:

The Mayor.

The Police.

The Hired killers.

They have their rules

To murder

people

who

disagree.

*

A fellow trustee was killed

4 de Julio del 2015.

The authorities did nothing

because

he opposed

their

corruption.

*

There is no justice.

We have much fear.

We made the decision to immigrate

for safety.

*

There is hope in Christ.

For faith in Christ

we are here

in

this

country.
