This text was about Pirates. The country most affected by Pirates is Somalia. Most Somalians are very poor. Another fact is that lots of Pirates used to be fisherman but they couldn’t fish anymore because other countries were taking their fish. They became poor so they decided to steal to survive. Somalia’s prisons are overflowing because there are so many pirates. I now understand that Somalia has some very poor people and they rely on other countries to help them. I also understand that pirates are very dangerous and violent which makes people who want to help them scared. Why do pirates use knives and not swords?
