POOR AND CONFLICT COUNTRIES
Situation In The Country With Big Problems
What could you do if you leave in the conflict area or in the starving community? can you study well and do your tasks easily? i don't think so. When we live in the country with the gun conflict, we may get some risks in example the bullet wound, the fright, even death which give us traumatic years. and so when we are continually in hunger, no chance for us to study as we want.
Beside it, war and gun conflict bring bad impact for our growth process. In the state of misunderstanding about thing happened, we forced to witness the slaughter and the death of parents, families, and other people we love. that's why, we feel every time our life is threatened. Thus, what kind of education we do need? Do we still do about creating high technology to make us live on the other the violences are around us? Or perhaps we hope we can develop some kind of technology with which we play all games all the time. Of course not, we know the answers.
Talking about the school in the future, the two of my friends and i agree to says that the school in the future have a different meaning for every country in the world, no strict definition for it. Altough we are going to the greatest civilization now, don't say the schools in the future are to put the highest technology for all people. Because we don't have the same condition, nothing we can do when we are threatened by the death anytime. Remember, although we are not living in the stone age anymore, we have never left our basic characters to have safety, and the happiness.
Based on the fact above, i would like to observe my friends all over the world, whether they are still schooling or not, what their expectancy for the future is. What is the negative effect of war to their education? Should their education to be continued?
CHILDREN IN THE CONFLICT AREA
In the state of emergency, the education activities should be exist. Don't let them wait until the war finished. Don't ignore them. The armed conflicts cause many citizens forced to leave their home and set down their children inthe serious risks. Even, the children are forced to be labors or to do the prostitute. That's why, education is needed to survive the children. School is important to support their emotional and social development and give the pleasant feeling. Children should get their own world.
Based on the research by Dr. Sarraj, quoted from the novel : Army of Roses by Barbara Victor. In 2005, when you asks the children in Palestine "what are you going to become when you grow up?" The answers we get is "syahid death"-killed while fighting for Islam. They said that as if they had got the fate. Everybody in the world has knoen well tha Palestine has a conflict wit Israel, it we are sad to see the children hopelessly reach their future. We should construct our world and open up the secret of the earth hand in hand, or working in team to overcome the problems coming up because of our activities of the earth, like global warming. Therefore, we cannot work alone.
I don't understand why the children do not have a chance to develop their ability. They are not gulity of the wars. Don't make them the victims. Please keep peace and give the children the education. We can be happy together.
THE STARVING CHILDREN
In Ethiopia, we often saw the people gathering in the grass field. The situation was not in the market or anything else as our routine. They were having a procession of burial. The dead body was a child who died because of the lack of nutrition and serious sick. There are some death cases caused by the starving every year.
Mafa E. Chipeta, The Coordinator of The United Nations Foods and Agriculture Organization for East Africa said that the death because of starving was not for the first time, but it continuosly happens. She said that The UNFAO was never
successful getting the solution for handling it. On the other hand, the some places the food is so abundant from abroad. Ethiopia is green with with as least seven rivers through this country. This country should be able to feed their people. But you see the children are slowly dying of hunger. The government spends hundred millions to handle the hunger, but only a little for economic development.
I don't understand the thought of the parents-they will not kill their got, hen, or cowthey have to give their children the food. They know when they do this all the family will be hungry. They like to choose their poultry better than their children. As far as i know parents love their children very much.
EDUCATION IN THE POOR COUNTRIES
I take my attention to the starving problem in Ethiopia and other backward countries where the children get famine. They are young generation who should get their future through education. Unfortunately, they cannot live just because of hunger. This suffering should be finished as soon as possible! The only way is through good education.
This are my opinions:
1. For parents, please take care of your children with love. God has blessed you with the nice children. they will give you the happiness someday. Love is the patience that would give expectation and the expectation is not desperate (wise words).
2. Don't hand over your fate to the miracle. And don't say that life is cheap.
3. The right education for this society is try to put your concern to the place where you live. Find the resources you have and make them useful for your life. However, it is not good to ask someone's help for your life.
4. Education of health is very important to make your life better. And you will be happy.
5. For the government, you have the authority to educate your people. Please make the welfare for the people step by step. They will solve all the problems of your country if they are smart. The first priority is the economic emprovement to develop your country.
