In 1950 i was a in the forest with one of my friend looking for animal, his name is kaba and he show a lion looking at me trying to kill him, he say if the lion need his meat, the lion can kill him cause his leaving in a country that the government dont care about the immigrant cause he was a immigrant, so the lion keep looking at him and i tell him kaba u not going do nothing about this lion he say no, he dont care about his life no more, but he was worry about his family, thinking about his family, he dont know the soldier oready kill all of them, the soldier was looking for the immigrant, they was going to everybody who they know is immigrant and kill them, me and kaba was far away from the capital, kaba was thinking not coming back to the capital cause he know the soldier is looking for the immigrant, he was like he wish he can fly go back to his country, me i was a citizen i come back home by my self i show how the soldier was killing this people but i can do nothing about it cause the soldier have power than me they have guns and tank, i was thinking stopping the tank and i went next to the tank i tell them to stop killing the immigrant people, i told them we need those immigrant people that your killing right now, plus my country economy was not okay it was bad, so maybe the soldier was thinking about the immigrant make this economy bad or something, i told them to stop spending a lot of weapon cause my country they like to spend money on weapon, and one soldier get out to the tank point out the gun on me trying to kill me, the soldier was thinking the have power more than the government cause they have guns and tank that’s why they think, the soldier was out of the mind, they end up killing me and my friend kaba never come back to the capital and run away he dont know where to do go, he just running cause he don’t to die.

Part 3:

Write a reflection about your story that explains how your story shows sociological imagination. [Sociological imagination is the the connection between 1) personal troubles and public issues, 2) personal behavior and social interaction, 3) biography and history, 4) individuals and wider society, as well as other overlaps between the private and public life.]

Personal troubles:

The African guy need to go back to the capital to get his family, he have to go back to his country because the soldier dont want the immigrant in the country nomore, so he dont have no choice.

The soldier was looking for the immigrant if they find any immigrant they will going to kill them, i was the person whos stopping the soldier but they dont want to listen. they doing whatever they want cause they have tank and guns.

The soldier end up killing me cause on they way im stopping them, they shot me in the head and the government dont care when they kill me and i was a citizen.

The African guy is now thinking how he going go back to his country, he was saying he wish he can fly.

Public issue:

In this country they soldier dont like the immigrant that’s racism

Everything was not okay in the country they economy was not okay at all

The government have no time talking to the soldier they have another issue so they was too busy.

The social imagination is the force and action of individuals that the soldier was doing cause they was killing people without excuse with is not right, the government should do something about but they was busy taking care of another business so they didn’t have time to talk to the soldier, the soldier and the immigrant cant get alone because the soldier is thinking that the immigrant make they country difficult, so that’s why they trying to take out the immigrant in the country, but however if they kill all those immigrant they cant make a better community that can work for them, cause the country need the immigrant.
