The Year To Remember

I vividly remember the year two thousand and seven (2007) on twenty seven December.I and my family members had celebrated together before the day. All the celebrations turned into mourning. Everyside of the people fought anyhowly forgetting that all of us are human beings. In our small village kibera there was a lot of confusion residents left children behind. One of or neighbors escaped and left her four-year old doughter .The girl did not understand what was going on. My parents took the girl as their doughter and I accepted her as my sister. The girl now is now at standard four at Olypic primary school .The poor girl really need support for her to continue with her education comfortably.She is kind, polite and honest. One never accept that her parents passed away.
