Being afraid of the unknown?

Who knew that trying to achieve liberty could mean to give everything and even our identity? Economic is controlling our world because of different aspect but in the western civilization, trafficking women is a huge trade. Israel is one example among many countries that practices it. Each year, they deported 1,500 women who most likely come from Ukraine and Russia. They leave their native country wishing to find better opportunities. It is not easy as it seems, specially when its about to find a shelter far from your own home. Entering a new world is the scariest thing because the unknown is facing you. Sadly for Russian and Ukrainian, the Islamism environment is not a welcoming place. Their papers and any kind of information of their identity disappear right away. They no longer belonged to themselves and became a property that could be sold on the market. Ironically, dancing on tables is the only way to survive. Not doing means to be beaten up or even raped. Their owner have no pity and treat them as objects. Refugees has only one right left: regretting to have left their homeland. Their old life is only a sad souvenir.

It is mind blowing to read an article and to realize how much women in other countries are suffering only to stay alive. They constantly live scared to be beat up to death or to end in horrible conditions ways. We don’t decide where we born, destiny does it for us but as a Canadian citizen, I feel blessed to be where I am; in a safe and reassuring place. My freedom is the reason to my personal development. If only, it could be the same to all humans in this world. To be free. With all this wars to protect human’s right, they are still horrible things going on. Human being doesn’t have a place on the market and yet its most valuable economy.
