Wall of Truth and Memory in San Salvador, El Salvador.
This wall lists over 30,000 names of people killed in El Salvador by their own government and paramilitaries. These paramilitaries and government soldiers were funded by mostly by the USA and even trained by the USA in some instances.
People keep saying that my degree is pointless or useless. I understand that it is a risk of an investment and that maybe I won’t do anything to make a significant change and that debt may follow me for quite awhile. But in the end, isn’t it better to try? I would love to have the knowledge to influence my government and other governments to turn away from such militaristic and violent policies. I don’t know the future and what I will put my degree towards and however idealistic studying peace sounds, it seems better than nothing to me.
