Most kids only care about sports, they don’t care about their learning and grades. Also, Many kids have died or had bad injuries that weren’t fixable because of sports. Why would you cause more deaths and injury, when you could ban sports which will gain more safety for students. That is why I think sports should be
As stated in an informational article on differing opinions about child soldiers, “Most children are forcibly recruited and even when they enlist they may not have thought carefully about their decisions or made an informed choice.” This shows how many children are kidnapped from their homes to join a corrupt army, and forced to endure the hardships of war at such a young age. They can not be held accountable for acts that they were forced into, and the only logical outcome in this argument is that all child soldiers are given amnesty. Although it can be argued that there are quite a few child soldiers that made the conscious decision to join the army, these soldiers were often misinformed, and only seeking to enlist for the offer of food, protection and a place to live after possibly losing their family and home to the raging war. Choice is an important thing, and once it is taken away, you cannot convict a person as if they still had that option to
What do thousands of kids do when they are scared that they will be charged with war crimes if they escape from there battle? That is what child soldiers across the world, ask themselves every day. Because they do not know if they should risk their lives to get amnesty that is promised to them, just to be thrown in jail. Because there are rules that the child soldiers don't even know, so it is a gamble they have to bid their lives on.. Child soldiers deserve amnesty because they are drugged and brainwashed, they are kidnaped or forced to join, also they are killed and abused for little to no reason. On top of that almost all child soldiers are drugged, to subdue them so that they will do what they are told without hesitation.
Child soldiers, whether the Janissaries or the modern ones, were risking their lives for a cause they might not even believe in. One similarity that cannot be disputed is how in both cases, the children lost their innocence. One thing is letting children play violent video games, where they know that they’re not hurting real people, but it is another to give children real weaponry and have them aim and shoot at real humans, with real aspirations and real dreams. The psychological damage to their brains is unimaginable. They didn’t get to spend their childhoods playing soccer with friends, and instead spent those years without knowing that their lives might really end at any
Most of the adults Dean knew growing up had never experienced their teenage years. They were too busy fighting the War; but because they did not died in battle, they found neither glory nor redemption in living. They had sacrificed their youth and they were angry about it. Even worse for most teens, their fathers viewed their children as burdens—punishment for not dying in the war. The War had taken their teen years.
I don’t have a job but I try my best to get the money that I need to help with getting food on the table but not all the time I can get a job on the streets but my Father tells me I should tryout for the army but I decline every time he asks me other times I just don’t respond but every time I think tomorrow is another day. I never really respected my parents I always thought they just had children so they could follow in their legacy but they really never talk to us, Dad yells at the tv when anything about America comes on and Mom just thinks about her looks and never once I have seen them put attention on

Before I went to bed, I went to go say “good night” when I open the door to Aimi darksome room, I see a bunny doll with buttons as eyes on the floor I start to think back on when it is a Aimi fifth birthday granny bought her a present a doll. Aimi loved it, she would have make pretend tea party with it few months later granny past and no one told Aimi until she found out herself when granny wasn’t visiting often and she found the puzzle pieces and put them together and after that she was downhearted and I had to comfort a five- year- old girl who lost her
I was a smart kid, I would wake up each morning making food and tuck myself in at night by myself. I was lonely painfully lonely I cannot explain the pain I felt as a child, but no kid doesn’t have the right to go through the stuff I went through. But to shake it off my mind, I would hang out and play with all the kids out in the streets. A year passed by my father and mother started fighting day and night my father would even physically abuse my mother even when she was pregnant with my Lil brother. At the time I was 5 I didn’t knew what to do but cry, praying to god to help my family.
The piece of evidence states that the children don’t complain and do whatever the commander says. Though many people may see child soldiers as perpetrators, they deserve forgiveness because even though they obeyed their leaders, it is only because they have no idea what is going on. They are drugged, brainwashed, scared, and have many other emotions that probably plug their brains enough for them to just do what they are told instead of think. “Apply the concept of command responsibility to political and military leaders.”(Irin) We should instead be punishing the commanders and others who abducted them and terrorized these children. This is such and urgent topic that I urge you to think about the commanders who put these children up to such terrible crimes.
It describes the cruelty of war and influences of war to people to let people think about war. What is war? What did war bring us? There are many people in the war might be similar to the main character, Paul in the novel. They are students before the war, but nothing they had learned in the school can save them from the war.
The survivors have no compassion in general and for other people. Shin was born and raised in the camp, so his thoughts were created based on what the government guards taught him. After living in the camp for all his life, he finally was free, but his way of thinking or how he acted could not be changed. Shin was still haunted by the nightmares of his mother and brother’s execution as he was “evolving from being an animal”, as well as having other symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. “...he mentioned a ‘dead space’ inside him, which he said made it difficult for him to feel much of anything.
In the “Children on the battlefield” article written by Marcie Schwartz explains that boys under 18 have served in many wars including the Civil War. They would join by lying about there age, having their parents sign them up, or there teachers would influence the recruiting officer to let them join. Some recruiting officers would look the other way so that they could met their quota. When they were enlisted they had many hard and dangerous jobs to do and also also served on military ships. The boys often were home sick and did not know what they wanted to do with there life.
However trouble comes across due to the majority of RUF rebel attacks were caused by children around their age, many villagers had no trust for these kids. Without having a good place for food and shelter these boys resort
Night clearly illustrates that while in the concentration camps, everyone had to fight for themselves in order to live. No one could do it for them. Sometimes in order to live, they had to attack someone they loved for that extra piece of food or that blanket that could make them a tiny bit warmer. It was not a choice that many prisoners wanted to make, but it was necessary for survival. Thanks to Elie Wiesel writing this particular piece of literature, the world is able to be reminded of the horrific things that these people went through for many years of their lives.
When the invasion started the group was worried about what happened to their families but they soon discover that the invaders are treating everyone (who didn’t resist) well and feeding them because they want a ‘clean invasion’ to try and stop the U.S. and U.N. from getting involved so it be quick and clean because homeland is overpopulated. “We’ve got all this land and all these resources, and yet there’s countries a cows spit away that have people packed away like battery Hens.” Page 170. This is Robyn’s perspective of the invasion but not all of the group share this view, such as Kevin who views it in a less religious and more violent and hateful way. “You sound like you don’t mind. You think it’s fair enough, do you?
