While the world celebrates the arrival of a new year, some people have nothing to look forward to. While people don beautiful dresses and head to parties, some people are still struggling to gather a meal for their family. Wonder what the new year will bring for these people. Earthquakes, bombs, floods and shootings that took away lives and left back misery, will never be forgotten. This is how 2015 was for some unfortunate people and how they will remember it.
