After a deadly bombing which killed thousands during a peace rally in the Turkish capital Ankara, the government is looking into who is responsible for this. There are two suspects,the Sunni militants of the Islamic State and the rebels of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or P.K.K but none have been identified yet. The main victims of these two bombings were the Kurds, who are considered a minority in Turkey.
This is not a way for anyone to live, with minorities and majorities, attacking each other and fighting for power. We see this all around the world. It is manifested in different ways, but it’s there and it has to end. This world is big enough for all of us but sometimes I feel like everyone should go pack to kindergarten and learn how to share and if they don’t, they have to go sit in the corner and think about what they did.
Just because people are different that doesn’t mean you are better. It doesn’t give you the right to end their lives. None of us have that right, and that’s one of the things that makes us equal.
I cannot say this enough, but I do not like this, and I know this isn’t the first time or place this has happened, but it just hurts more every time a see this.
I am very sad for the people of Turkey who lost loved ones and friends to this.
And I just want to imagine a better world, hoping it can happen.
I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
