and Afghan people. Between U.S. and Afghan people there has been a total of 111,000 dead and over 116,000 seriously injured in the Afghanistan War (Crawford). On the U.S. side, 2,350 troops died during the war and 20,092 were injured. Out of the 20,000 injured 1,645 troops lost a limb and some lost all (Amadeo). Not all injuries were physical some were mental such as over 320,000 troops that fought in Afghanistan suffered a traumatic brain injury and around 138,000 troops have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (Amadeo).
The Vietnam War lasted for 20 years (1955-1975), more than 2 million lives were lost. 3 million people were wounded, and thousands of children were left orphans. The war destroyed both North and South Vietnam. In my opinion, war is, unnecessary and useless. We must strive towards peace and harmony not violence.
Smallpox affected all levels of society. In the 18th century in Europe, 400,000 people died annually of smallpox, and one-third of the survivors went blind. The symptoms of smallpox, appeared suddenly and the sequelae were destructive. The case-fatality rate varied from 20% to 60% and left most survivors with disfiguring scars. The case-fatality rate in infants was even higher, approaching 80% in London and 98% in Berlin during the late
Many adults are left with ptsd, but what about kids, if these experiences can leave adults debilitated, what about the children. Children’s brains aren’t fully developed, so it can become much worse, which is why child soldiers should be given help instead being prosecuted. “More than half of the country’s health facilities are out of service, water facilities have been destroyed and more than 15 million children are in need of water and sanitation facilities.” In desperate times people may do desperate things, as long as the survive, people will do anything; same goes for children. Another example of requiring aid involves a child soldier, Omar Khadr, held at Guantanamo Bay. “They will never see the video of his interrogation by Canadian intelligence agents where he is lying on the floor crying for his mother.”(Andrea Prasow).
World War II is said to be the worst conflict in human history. About fifty to eighty million people died all together. There were concentration camps run by the Germans and there were essentially two wars raging. The two wars were the war in Europe and the war in the Pacific, which was Japan against the United States. World War II went on for six years and would destroy more land and property around the world and kill more people than any other war before.
Attachment issues can cause physical problems, such as failure to thrive, as well as emotional disorders like depression, failure to form attachments to caregivers, or mental-health disturbances. The more times a child is moved, the less likely he is to form secure attachments. Between 33 and 66 percent of foster-care arrangements are disrupted during the first two years, reports developmental psychologist, Brenda Jones Harden in "Safety and Stability for Foster Children," an article published in the winter 2004 issue of the journal The Future of Children. Kids with attachment issues might be distrustful and suspicious, unable to follow rules, or appear to have no sense of guilt over their behavior. Some attach too easily to any adult that try tries to care for them, but on a shallow level and to meet their basic
Introduction There have been a variety of studies, which have established how disruptions to attachment and bonding can negatively effect on emotional and psychological development. Family separation and loss experiences have been clearly identified as a risk factor for mental health problems in childhood and adulthood. Way of thinking, temperament and experiences all things play important roles, children who have had broken up relationships with primary caregivers are more likely to have compromised mental health. Separation and loss can be traumatic and its impact depends on the situation of the separation or loss. The work of Van der Kolk (1996) and others (Glaser, 1998) also work on the effect of attachment on mental health ,time addition ,situation ,or conflict between child r care giver, sometimes effect psychological and biologically.
“In the last ten years over two million children have been killed, over one million orphaned, over six million have been left seriously injured or permanently disabled and over 10 million have been diagnosed with psychological trauma(Author)”. All of these young soldiers suffer in a way hard to handle for most young children. A child in specific named Khadar was seriously injured while in battle. After the U.S. forces entered a compound in Afghanistan where Khadr and others were located bombs were through injuring many men and women… and Khadar. As written in The Child Soldier on Trial at
Poverty is a very common thing in all of Latin America. One in five of the Latin American people are affected by poverty. That's only about 130 million people. Did you know that 1 in 3 children, today in Spain, lives under the poverty line? Currently, a child dies every three seconds because of poverty, which means that 30,000 children die every day.
They die of pneumonia, malaria, diarrhoea and other diseases. Children from rural and poorer households remain disproportionately affected. Children from the poorest 20% of households are nearly twice as likely to die before their fifth birthday as children in the richest 20%. Maternal mortality is a key indicator of health inequity. Maternal mortality is a health indicator that shows the wide gaps between rich and poor, both between and within countries.
Adolescents who lack a secure attachment relationship with their caregivers are at a greater risk for dysregulation of affect when experiencing trauma and the developing the symptoms of posttraumatic stress. Insecurely attached children and adolescents do not seek comfort in their caregivers so when exposed to trauma, their coping abilities are significantly hindered. When not able to seek protection and comfort in their caregivers, insecurely attached youth are more likely to be overwhelmed by stress; coping alone with limited resources may cause hyperarousal or disassociation (Perry, 2001). Likewise, an adolescent with a secure attachment can act as a layer of defense against the potential adverse effects of trauma (Finkelhor & Browne, 1984). A secure attachment also provides a safe a nurturing environment that enables the adolescent to process the traumatic events and become more equipped to return to a sense of safety and wellbeing- at least the same level experiences prior to the traumatic experience.
Physician Coburn noted that poor Veterans Affairs’ budget management led to many deaths as well. He also stated that the Veterans Affairs used roughly $20 billion for non-health-related purposes. Starting in 2001, the Veterans Affairs has paid around $845 million for malpractice cases (Devine, 2014). Rajiv Chandrasekaren noted in an article that nearly 60% of patients claim that the Veteran Affairs is providing poor or barely fair medical care to wounded war veterans. About 50% claim that the Veteran Affairs is offering poor effort when it comes to helping them adjust psychologically to a life outside war (The Washington Post,
Approximately 1,000 people die to Khmer Rouge each year even after thirty years. Before the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia had one of the most advanced economies in South Asia. During the Khmer Rouge two to three million people were killed which is almost one fifth of the population of Cambodia. The thinking of the Khmer Rouge during their time of control was to kill all of the educated people of the country (“Poverty”). Cambodia ever since the Khmer Rouge has never been back to its state of peace, with violence happening almost twenty years after the Khmer Rouge starting with a Civil War.
Malaria occurs when blood parasites of an infected mosquito are transmitted from human to human. According to an article, “A child dies every minute from malaria in Africa where it is estimated that 9 out of 10 malaria deaths occur” (“World Health,” par. 3). Africa has become known for malaria deaths, but also that it kills an African child every minute. With the majority of Africa’s population being children, they become the victims of most diseases because they have the weakest immune systems.
