Tears of sorrow
It was a reunion among Sandra’s family because everyone was happy to see Sandra again. Even Daniel decided to change his life, from stealing and engage in gangs, because of the return of his mother.

At the same time Nick pat her on her shoulder and said,
“no cry mi darling, all dis trouble will soon be ova”.
Sandra’s family was so very happy, when she got the visa to go to England. However, Sandra’s husband Nick did not know that things would have turned out this way for the family. Nick thought that the migration of Sandra would improve the standard of living for them. Eventually the absence of Sandra turned out for the worst situation a family can ever face.
Saturday morning about six thirty, Sandra woke up and stood at the gate with her left hand on her jaw wondering and pondering, looking at her ruined house and family. Sandra remembered the bad news that she heard while she was abroad; about the fact that Daniel was running around with gangs in the neighbourhood and also involved in gang wars....
