What I Learned
by Samantha Marinelli
While I was writing this essay, I had to research a lot through questioning and reading. I learned that El Salvador was a very dangerous country during the civil war and for almost seventy years had no stable government. After asking Felix Ulloa my questions, the expert from El Salvador, I understood how difficult it was to live in the country at that time. I can not imagine how horrible it was for people because they could not do anything unless the government approved . My essay is about propaganda in El Salvador, from both the rebels and the government, and it was interesting to see how people reacted to the two groups. It was also interesting that people did not want the help of the United States because in the US we believe we can help everyone, but El Salvador showed that is not always the truth . Finally, I realized that each country has different ideas of government, and it is very difficult to fight for human rights.
