When my brother came back from Viet Nam, he told me about children being sent out into the battlefield.

I signed the petition which John had posted quite some time ago in the same news item.
Oh my goodness my buddy, my heart aches for these innocent children and prayers will be ongoing to protect them from being stolen/kidnapped and forced to be soldiers/killing in combat!
Posted to Twitter too.

On behalf of everyone at Human Rights Watch, thank you for your partnership in our work. Is bad enough that so many adults are fighting in wars, that children are caught in the crossfire, but to be sent off to kill is horrific, what a shame.

I think when those adults go to war is bad enough, it s not just worse but the worst to see child soldiers. I signed the petition with a hope that this can be ended as soon as possible.
