The Story of My Life Ended in Gondar!

by Veronica Leou
(Gondar, Ethiopia, Africa)

It all started when I was born, my mother was a single mother who was raped at age 16. She then gave birth to me at a hospital downtown St. Louis when she was 17.

The guy who assaulted her then started to hunt her down and leave her threats everywhere. We had to move 46 1/2 times to try and lose him.

My mother then thought it was wise to put us in the Witness Protection Agency.

After I turned 17, I decided to go off on my own and risk everything. He found me and beat me almost to death. I called 911 and they put him in jail for good, then he died.

I then moved to Gondar. We now live here permanently and I love it. That is the end of my story.

What makes a place beautiful?

A beautiful place loses its beauty if the people were not so beautiful. Beautiful people make their place beautiful. Hard people make their place hard and careless people make their place ugly! (1) Is it only you that makes the place beautiful? (2) Answer at Any Beautiful City.
