I want to inform you that this is not my country, and now that I live here, I can understand why so many people who want to live here. I will tell you why:
There is always work.
There are many aids, and of all kinds, for food, for studies, for the elderly, and more. And these people get housing in good places at a lower cost, etc.
I love that for seniors or the elderly, they can get work anywhere, and these people feel very useful because they do a job and stay busy.
I really like that in this country the laws are respected, and they are not broken or mocked because people know that they will be sanctioned; that this will be met is very good because people are educated and thus contribute to it being a better country.
The value they give to children of any age is very beautiful; they take them into account for everything and support them in everything.
The people who live here in Clovis say that it is poor, but the reality is that they do not know poverty, because as poor as they are, they have comfort. Besides the help that the government provides them, a poor person in my country does not even have something to eat—that is a poor person.
