child soldiers

CNN did a disturbing piece today on child soldiers. Read the story and watch some of the video links for yourself when you have a few minutes. The video about children fleeing the horror of militia kidnappers is especially insightful but horrid. We are so thankful that Joshua was born a few years too late to have a similar experience in Liberia, but there are so many children still in harm's way throughout the world.
