Migration is always hard for the first generation, people who went through this know how many obstacles are in your way. I did that when I was 24 and had to leave my home town, friends and family behind and be away from my wife for about 3 years. You go through hell to learn the new culture (for some people also the language), you have to work twice as hard to prove yourself to get a decent job because not too many people have even heard of your University’s name and don’t trust your skills. I went through all of these and a lot more and when time was getting tough, I always said to myself don’t worry you are doing this for better tomorrow for your family and next generation. I always said to myself it is tough right now but your kid will be born and will grow in a better place where he/she is free and will be safe from oppression and can pursue the American dream.
But days like today scares me, we ran from a country that executes a blogger for expressing his opinion and came to a place that innocent children are massacred by a psycho, just like that. For a parent (which I am not) school should be the safest place after home. The only place that you can leave your children and be sure they are gonna be fine and will be taken care of.
I am not a parent but can’t even think about what’s going through those parents’ mind. There are psychos all over the world but can they all equip themselves with mass murder weapons that easily?
Just in past one year we’ve had Colorado, Oregon and now Newtown. I don’t know how 2013 is going to be.
Are we ever gonna learn?
