Life in Colombia

August 8, 2007

Scott Nicholson - Colombia

"We are so tired of this life" Yuri said to me.  Yuri is five years old, and she's living here in the Arauca Social Organizations building in Saravena with her mother and two sisters.

She walked into the office as I was downloading pictures and started talking to me.  "My birthday was on October 31 and we had such a good time.  I'm going to be six this year."  Yuri told me about the party and then suddenly said, "My father bought me clothes just before he was killed.  I was three years old."
