Some nights I wake up to nightmares, I can see in my dreams how mothers gets tortured, their fingers cut off, the idea is for them to shut up. Girls rape daily and infected with various diseases.

Have you ever heard of Ogadenia? Province in Ethiopia controlled by Melez Zenawi? He is doing ethnic cleansing. But you do not care about, maybe. Life is too stressful for you to even give one seconds compassion for other people. You have studies to think about, care about your friends, love to think about. You walk around and think about how your future looks like. Will you have children? Will you live happily with your future spouse. You may be a common Swedish, English or American. You live in your country, go freely about the flag on your t-shirt. Mom and Dad are living happy, you may not even care of the history of your country. You may be an Ogaden, born in Sweden, Englandor America. Without knowledge of what is really going on in your home country, but would rather go into history lessons in school and learn about English history, the history of the kings of Swedenor of how Americacreated and can be one of the world’s largest continent. I’ll tell you one thing.

I’m a girl, 21 years old. Lives in Sweden and grew up here. Today I have been clear school of nursing program. I work in an Alzheimer’s residents. I may look happy and pretty worrying loose out. But the pain I walk around with every day, nobody knows about. I can feel Swedish but know that I am Swedish on paper only. I’m really only an immigrant in a country where some people do not want me in. But I can understand them of course, this is their country and how some immigrants behave so clear they pull all immigrants over the same comb . But who will tell them, if they care that I am from Ogadenia. A country not on the world map yet, a country denied by so many.

Some nights I wake up to nightmares, I can see in my dreams how mothers gets tortured, their fingers cut off, the idea is for them to shut up. Girls rape daily and infected with various diseases. Fathers and brothers carried away with the idea that they will not be able to support the family and protect their women and children. I wake up in cold sweat, thanking my God (Allah) that they one day be released from it. I read the Koran and pray to my God to help these people. Everything has their days, Ogadenias day havent just arrived yet. Other nights, I dream of the Ogaden flag that sits on top of the flag stalls, I have formed my own family, walking around the streets, know that this is my homeland, I am no longer an immigrant. I can walk around with my flag and has a story to tell my children. They should be told how much the people have fought for it and be thankful. When I wake up I can only say INSHALLAH.

I just want to remind everyone out there. Whether you live in Europe,America orAustralia. Do not forget you are just an immigrant who is still depressed. You are depressed in mind. If you sit and thinking of to go back to your homeland one day and is just a stranger where you live, WAKE UP TO LIFE. You must start caring about your country. Try to think out how to get your home free, or get other people to know what’s going on over there. Prepare for war, and now I’m not talking about real guns. Use the pen as your weapon. Write your thoughts, tell everyone at work, school and streets. The more who knows the more that happens. I CARE ABOUT OGADENIA.

Suleeq/ONA.
