Hi Alexander,

We grow everything in the US because it is big and has very good soil in many parts of our country, growing food is abundent in the US. Of course we also raise livestock in different parts of the country. Kenya is almost the same size as Texas. Texas has a lot of livestock, some farming but that State is more dessert like. Texas is known for it's oil. We live in Maryland which is midatlantic on the east coast. It's a tiny State but the land is very good for crops and we have lots of seafood because our State is on the Coast. I think a lot of corn (or maize) is grown here, soy, and many other vegetables. I only have a small vegetable garden on our property and mostly buy my food from local farmers. We do not have that much land as a family. We eat mostly from local farmers but most Americans shop in grocery stores and the food could come from all over the US, sometimes for South America. Our kids go to Kindergarden, then start 1st grade and go through to 12th grade. About 30% go on to University in the US. They usually finish school at age 18. My youngest daughter is filling applications out now for going to College or University and my older two kids are in University right now. It is hard with the pandemic, they are mostly learning through their computers since they don't meet in person, so they stay in their rooms and get lectures from their professors that they view from their computers.

Keep reading books, that will help you when you get back in school.

Take care, Laura

    Padre

    Padre excelled in primary school and was ranked number four in his class. However, with six children to take care of, his family struggles to make ends meet. There are very few resources at home and they often do not have enough food to feed their children. Since none of Padre’s older siblings had the opportunity to go to secondary school, he hopes to be the first in his family to graduate so that he can give back to his family and his community.
