Go Back To Where You Came From

I have never been one to watch SBS. I prefer the superficial easy watching of Nickelodeon and Disney and shows on the BBC. Yesterday, however, my Geography teacher begged us to watch “Go Back To Where You Came From” and I reluctantly agreed. I didn’t know what to expect from the show, never really having an interest in Refugees and Asylum Seekers. I have known that they’re there, of course, but have never cared enough to form an opinion over the subject. I sat down and found myself on the verge of tears. I was absolutely heartbroken, especially when half the group was sent to a family of refugees in my town. As I watched, I thought of the new girls who have just started at my school, moving from Zimbabwe to seek a better life. It hit home hard, and I suddenly realised how much I just want them to all come and live here. 
I don’t really know what else to say on the subject. It’s so emotional and…I don’t even know. If you haven’t been watching, promise you’ll tune in tomorrow night at 8.30pm for the final part (unless you’ll be joining me at the Miley Cyrus concert!). Every Australian should watch. I can’t even explain how powerful and brilliant it is.

  1. I don't live in Australia, and I don't think they have it where I live. But I do know the feeling… it's so strange that people who have been through so, so much oftentimes sit beside you in school.Have fun at the concert(:
