Africa's Children...

                 These past few weeks, news stations have been over flowing with the riots going on in North Africa, the Sudanese elections, and Charles Taylor's trial...For those who live in these specific countries, their lives have been greatly affected no doubt, some more than others. But it is those individuals whom we rarely hear of in the news, the victims who are forced to fight at a very young age, I want us to remember....They are our childrens best friends, neighbors children, nephews, and nieces...They are the Child soldiers of Africa. During Charles Taylor's time in office, we saw them in the news, when we watch movies like Blood Diamonds, we see their experiences acted out...You need not meet them in person to realize the atrocities they have experienced, all you need is to take a look at a photo, look into their eyes, to see the anger, the pain, how unfair life is...and remember that 7 year old's are not meant to be soldiers...
