Recently I learned about the story of a girl named Malak, who had to migrate away from a country called Syria because there was a war. She had to travel on a RUBBER BOAT! Water was splashing and Malak was wearing a TANK TOP! She must have been SO COLD! Also her bag with all her NEW CLOTHES got THROWN into the OCEAN because the bag was weighing the boat down. Malak thought her mum and her might DROWN. It was also very dark. I can't even IMAGINE how scared she must have been.
From every sad situation, we can choose to feel DESPAIR or HOPE. I choose HOPE. I hope for a world filled with peace so no one has to leave their country because of war. I hope that children everywhere are safe and are able to have good lives. I hope that people learn to solve disagreements in a peaceful way like Martin Luther King Jr did. I hope children everywhere grow up learning the values of PEACE and LOVE so that we can together create a better world.
