What I Learned about Colombia from Talking with Denise - LA

She’s from Cartagena. She is the wife of Blake and mother of 14-month-old Sam. Denise has been studying philosophy for four years. For those of you what a philosopher is, it’s a person studies a question about sociability and life. From what she says it’s always summer in Cartagena. Denise is an expert on conflict and poverty. She thinks it’s weird to see squirrels everywhere. Toys are pretty much the same. Denise really likes fish. And she didn’t even think about getting married before she met Blake.

First of all, she doesn’t agree with any rebel groups. She doesn’t like the Colombian government because many people are suffering. Apparently, the Colombian government is doing a lot to stop the violence by lying to stop the war. But they don’t care about the Indigenous; their safety just isn’t the Colombian government’s top priority. So far there is no big threat to the government. But the Indigenous and civilians are trying to fight back. So far, Denise hasn’t seen any violence in her neighborhoods. And with the stories that are going around, Denise can’t which story is true.
