The main focus of the movie about the bus hostage situation did not catch much attention from myself, mostly because events like that happen quite often in America, however we handle them much differently. Instead it was the facts and problems behind the children living in poverty. These kids are pushed out of society at such an early age, leaving them with no other way to live their life other than to turn towards theft and crime. This is all they have ever known and is the only way they are able to survive. In America we have many of the same problems, however children are given more of a chance early in life, keeping them off the streets and showing them a better path to take; from there it is their own decision. Events like these around the world help to make sure that we are aware of poverty, and that we essentially learn from other countries' mistakes.
