This is a story of how the genocide has effected the lives of many innocent children. The child in this story, Dominic, represents what all the children have seen and been through as they faced the horrendous effects of the South Sudanese genocide in 2011.
I chose to research the genocide in South Sudan because I have a personal connection with this incident. Last year my U.S history teacher was part of the refugee aid program. I had the once in a life time opportunity to communicate with kids my age who live in South Sudan. We had pen pals and my pen pal was Dominic. I had the opportunity to try understand what Dominic feels and has been through by reading his letters. Dominic has inspired me to do my research project on South Sudan.
