About a week ago the presidential elections in Honduras took place. The current president of Honduras is literally the worst president of all times. He didn’t do anything good for Honduras. The crimes didn’t decreased, they increased. Bodies are getting dropped in every street and the police doesn’t do anything. The poverty in Honduras increase by a lot. In every street there are kids asking for money. They are not even in school because their family don’t the money to pay for their uniforms. These kids only have two options: Starve to death or become gangster and killers. 12, 13,14,15,16,17 years becoming killers. It’s sad really sad. It’s incredible how he has the balls to run again for president again. In Honduras it’s illegal to run for president twice, but guess what he doesn’t care about the breaking the rules. Like I was saying the elections happened and there were two candidates that were at the top: THe current president Juan Orlando and the runner-up Salvador Nasralla. You might be asking yourself why is the current president at the top when he was so bad? Well, the people in Honduras are that stupid. He literally paid the low class some money and in exchange the low class voted for him. Delusional people. Plus, When he saw he was losing he cheated and members of his party were giving fake identifications and making people under 18 vote for him. On the other side there some smart people that voted for a better future. They hate the actual president and want Honduras to grow and become a better country. After the first day, The runner-up was winning by 5% and The TSE (the people that control the voting) declared him the winner. But the current government is so corrupted that the next day the TSE said that everything could happen and change the results. After a week of counting votes (A WEEK!!) out of nowhere he current president surpassed the runner-up. Something definitely happened in the inside, Obviously some corruption. After posting this results, The country started a whole revolution. The country is literally on fire. Protest in Honduras isn’t as peaceful. They burning buses, they stealing from supermarkets. They destroying everything in their way. Everything is literally close in Honduras. They even blocking highways and making them leave their cars and walk home. There is no limit in Honduras. People are also dying. There is a video of an innocent 9 year old kid that got shot and die by protesters. A 9-YEAR-OLD KID!!! I couldn’t resist myself and tear came out but at the same time I thought of all my family in Honduras. Especially my mom. These past days have been hell in Honduras. I can’t stop thinking about her safety. We can’t bring her to the U.S because the streets are taken. Stress just accumulates. There are too many things to worry about. Finals, My mom safety and health. All I can do is to hope for the best.
