I left Venezuela eight years ago. In all this time, I have tried to explain what is happening in my country, but it has been hard. Do not get me wrong; I can understand why a person who lives in an ordinary place does not understand Venezuela. Venezuela is a country wi...

If you are a Floridian, you have learned at the school or by your own experience what to do in case of a hurricane wants to visit you: buy water, buy cans of food, protect the house, get gas as crazy, go to a shelter, or evacuate in case of a big catastrophe. In my cas...

feeling lonely,
making wishes to the stars
asking for a family.
