There has been a growing epidemic worldwide, and we need to stop it. Child soldiers. These innocent children have been brainwashed into doing horrible things that they will regret. Kids as young as 8 years old become child soldiers and this ruins their lives. Being a child soldier scars you and most have a hard time recovering from that.
This clearly shows that child soldiers are victims because they don’t have a choice to be a child soldier and kill people. Since they are trying to not disobey the leader so nothing bad will happen to them. I personally think that adults taking children out of their own house, taking them away from their own family members already makes them a victim. But when they are training and listening to their leader to make sure they are safe makes them an even more victim than they already
Dehumanization is the process of depriving a person or group of positive human qualities. Acts in both genocide that represented dehumanization were people and children actually viewing their friends and family being killed in front of them. Everything was very traumatic for everyone that saw or even heard what was going on. Another similarity was that they all were racially profiling people. If you were Asian you were smart, if you are smart you were a threat, if you are a homosexual you are bad, etc.
Children are being forced to fight in war and deserve amnesty. Children are getting pushed into war. Children are turning into killers because of the war. Even though the children killed others, it’s not their fault. The children were drugged and had no control of what they were doing.
Hundreds of children are forced to put in the army but some kids join on their own and suffer years and when they try to come out they come out worse than when they joined. They come out with broken bones or even missing body pieces, some kids don't even make it back out they die or they kill them before even starting war. Poverty kills children and also eventually kills family because of the children dying, the government doesn't care about children but they do care about winning a war. “Special attention will be given to the young women and girls, who are likely to have suffered sexual abuse, so that they can rejoin their communities without the stigma associated with such abuse.” young women suffer more than male soldiers, females are abused sexually and are thrown back to there
I think Frost is blaming the boy 's death on years upon years of noxious societal views forced upon the people. He 's blaming society because we as people can 't learn, and the boy 's death is an example of this (No more to build on there. / And they, since they / Were not the one dead, turned to their affairs).The boy represents all the kids who lost their lives for trivial causes, such as being coerced into child labour. He 's blaming society for being apathetic and not being able to see the flaws in their traditions. He wants society to open their eyes and understand that too many people died for this type of job to be right.
In the past, innocent people got persecuted by the hands of other individuals because of hatred. These terrible actions started because of the pure hatred, lack of knowledge, and people didn’t fight back. Since, this happened people have lost their lives for example 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and shooting that is going on. “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate”. Nazi ideology started Propaganda causing discrimination and hate which justified genocide, which led 6.3 millions Jews killed.
Uwen Akpan chooses Monique as a narrator to show the loss of innocence caused by the traumatic effects of war. By telling a story through a child’s lens, Akpan allows his readers to experience the cruelty a child faces because of the wrongdoings of adults. Throughout the story, a nine-year-old Monique suffered assault, rape, and witnessed the murder of her mother by her father. To show the effects of violence from a different viewpoint, Akpan gives an insight on victim’s conflicted thoughts and emotional trauma. Monique’s innocence is completely shattered when she witnesses her father killing her mother.
In any occasion, they were raped or maybe hurt in places like school. They also have been abandoned by their parents. For these reasons, they hate the world. Then, they carry a great frustation in the life. I remeber the attack of september 11 in United States.
Kids who die is saying that no matter what your skin color is everyone going to die soon, And we all fighting and dying and the rich don’t care. When he said beating with them with laws and clubs and bayonets and bullets to means they are talking about police brutality because the police are killing a lot of kids and not caring or serving time like they are suppose to be. When he said we will be living on weaving words to smother kids who die, and the sleazy courts which mean the judges do not care the kids are dying, and the bribe reaching police are bribing the kids do also killing them, the blood-loving general who send the kids to fight for them and are dying for them they do not care, and the money-loving preachers are getting money
