Aruba: A reminder from Suriname

A passage in a book about Suriname received as a Christmas present resonates strongly with ArubaGirl: “While things in Aruba aren't nearly as bad as they were during that time in Suriname, I could particularly identify myself with that passage. It seems like here in Aruba, the government just take actions, willy nilly the protests of the people. Yes, I know they were voted in power, but surely that doesn't mean that all of us just have to sit back and be quiet, does it?”
