Colombia has been referred to as “a humanitarian crisis,” “a failed state,” and “a geopolitical risk.” I am a Colombian who grew up in Canada. Often, when I think of family and home, my mind turns to Colombia. I want to know: why is it that my homeland, a three-hour plane ride from Miami, has landed in the same slot as Afghanistan and Pakistan? I itch to unravel this character “Colombia” for myself. – Paula
