A few years ago, I picked up a book, titled “A Long Way Gone”, by Ishmael Beah. Ever since then, I’ve made it a point to educate myself on the struggles that children in Africa face. This is TRULY heartbreaking to watch and read about. Just because it doesn’t happen here, or wherever you live, doesn’t mean it won’t one day affect YOU. All people on the Earth that we share deserve to feel safe. No child should ever have to think (constantly) about being abducted, killed, raped, or inducted as a child soldier.
Please PLEASE take the time to watch this video, and share it wherever you can. You may not be able to go to Africa and lend these people a hand, but sharing this video and creating awareness of a serious situation is the least we can do.
