I think that having child soldiers is just not rite at all. There is no reason why a little toddler should be dealing with those kind of situations. I think that anybody who would do that to a child deserves to be given the death penalty! That is pretty much howI personally feel about having child soldiers. It should have never started in the first place it's just completely wrong.

The book that i read was Why I Fight by J. Adams Oaks. I think so far that this book is really good. This is a very exciting book about a boy named Wyatt Reeves who is adopted by his uncle Spade. As his Uncle already has a bad problem with gambling and when he finds out that Wyatt is a very talented street fighter he gets money hungry. What I love about this book so far is that it is very intense and you could almost feel every punch that was thrown. The author used a really good vocabulary too. So you could get a really good picture in your head of what is going on in the book. This book is a perfect size it's not too long and it's not too short. I think that this is a very good book for sports fans and people who like a lot of action.

"It's like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder
How I keep from going under"
This verse comes from the song "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash. I think that this verse relates back to the book A Long Way Gone because it is like a jungle where he is and it makes me wonder how i keep from going under would be true because so many people died back then.
"I can't take the smell, I can't take the noise no more
Got no money to move out, I guess I got no choice"
This is another verse that comes from the song "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash. This relates to the book very good because the smell in the air was probably nasty cause of all the dead corpses and what not. The noise would be lots of gun fire and people screaming so not being able to take the gunfire anymore. It's hard enough for them to even get food so they definitely don't have any money and they have no choice on what to do and what comes next for them.

There goal was to overthrow the government of Sierra Leone. They were fighting for control and freedom. They are still trying people for the holocaust and some of the people from the RUF were convicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
