Noted thank you Rose.
Brought tears to my eyes . The stolen innocents of these children. They have seen things that not even an dult should see.
I hope they had a nice peaceful day.

You know that there are children living lives like this, and then you hear a pampered teenager whining about being 'nagged' by their parents or not having the latest iphone and you think, 'yep'.
That these particular kids have finally been rescued, are physically safe and are among people who care and will provide them with the most basic human 'needs', it is a beautiful thing.

Making children function as soldiers is one of the most evil of acts. These children deserve so much more, but at least they get to have some fun. Thanks, Rose.

Poor babies. Thank you, Unicef, for making their lives a little brighter. We are so fortunate and we just don't appreciate it. Noted thanks.

It is so sad. I agree with Nimue statement about how we are so fortunate and we don't appreciate it. It's a fact. I have read all sorts of the articles about how much food we toss our of our homes each and every day/week. While these poor people starve. As for the part about training them as soliders makes me even sicker. These evil minded people who are doing that, should be stuck in a cell with no food or water. Thanks Rose

I've made mines the words of Ugoji A. Eze, Esq.
The 2012 16 Day's Campaign is over yet globally the struggle should continue. The International community needs to remember the plight of Ex- Female Child Soldiers. A great deal of attention is placed on "Child Soldiers" and by that i mean ones mind automatically turns to the" male child soldier."As we end the 16 Days of Activism, let us remember the female child soldier they too face violence and are often forgoten when one speaks on violence against women and girls.The Engr. Aja Eze Foundation advocates for the female child soldier.Kindlyjoin us to eradicate this horrific form of violence against women and girls.
Visit the following websites International Day of the African Child, June 4th 2012 onthe events link
Let us remember the children in zones of conflict who are forced to bear arms.
