Flynn Lindsey Flynn Professor Melfi Engl 1101 23 September 2010 The Game of Soccer Equals Life The game of soccer symbolizes life. In the game of soccer you have your wins and losses, your ups and downs, just like in life. However, in both cases you should never give up. That is exactly what the refugee players did in Warren St. John’s novel, Outcasts United . In the novel, he tells a true story of the refugee families that moved to Clarkston, Georgia. All of these refugee families came from various parts of the world, Afghanistan, Iraq, Liberia, Somalia, Ethiopia, and Sudan, to name a few (St. John 156). As all of the families struggle to make their new and better life in the small town of Clarkston, Georgia in the United States, their children are united by two things. Those two things were their love for the game of soccer and their coach, Luma al-Mufleh. Luma, herself, was not born in the United States. She left her hometown of Amman, Jordan and all of her family, when given the opportunity to study at Smith College in the United States (21).
