#4 Story or Poem Analysis

The article I read through was from EBSCO, My country was Bangladesh. I have a very warm heart for the needy and reading about the amazing things, it put a perspective on the real life of an average Bangladeshi. They wake up, in an impoverished home, and start the day eating and drinking unclean water and food with parasites and viruses within the water. They use anything they can to stay alive and survive, clean drinking water is paid for just to have a taste of water.

Imagery wise, I painted a picture in my head of dirty rusted pipes gushing water, children waiting on the other end to receive a glass of the day to drink water. Unfortunately it is unclean so I assume it’s a slight brownish color and carries tiny unseeable viruses.

Some words used were “Desperate” and “Hoping.” The average Bangladeshi works day to night doing all sorts of building, and cultural jobs to keep the town running smoothly. If you loose your job you become so desperate you eat and drink anything you can get your hands on. You just hope you can at least know where your next meal is going to come from.

This was an informative article that is heart wrenching even though it may seem small to some. It’s a privilege here, but not in many countries. It helps you see to be aware of others. If you know what’s going on, be kind and raise awareness along with helping. If you don’t know, be kind and love everyone you pass.

In the country Dhaka, it is one of the top 3 most impoverished countries, alerting you with awareness. I noted an anonymous man quoted in the article “If we didn’t have to pay to drink clean water, we wouldn’t all be dying” it was unfortunate but true. He then shares a little of his story and how his kids try their best to fight sickness from the dirty water.
