COLOMBIA’S MIDDLE CLASS FEELING STING OF VIOLENCE

By Dominique Larrandurugaray

Resumen


His life has all the trappings of a professional anywhere. He recently joined a country club and has taken up golf.

But unlike anywhere else, this executive has to keep his eyes peeled on the daily commute for criminal mobs. When he gets home after a long day, he has to explain to his daughters why people from different political groups are hacking one another to death. Even his own affluent neighborhood has been affected. Some of the Arango' neighbors recently fled their five-bedroom homes because of the violence that had exploded in Colombia since a long term civil war turned this promising Latin-American country upside down.
