    I admire her bravery but I can't help but think that she's never going to be anything resembling normal. She's so cool, almost robotic, when she talks about death. Perhaps some of that is cultural, though.

    Incidently, I can't believe these atrocities towards children don't get more press. I'm ashamed that we aren't doing anything to protect them.

    I admire her bravery on speaking out.. if she ever has to go back home she could suffer almost as bad a fate as when she was abducted into the army. I mean think of what she went through-- forced removal from her family, forced to kill innocent people, forced sex slave to the other soldiers.. I mean if she's robotic it's to save her sanity. This happened to her, she didn't ask for any of that. And she finally broke down near the end of her talk at the UN.

    But this is something that kids in the western world cannot relate to (god forbid), but I can't help but think that since she's African people will see her and other children like her as expendable cannon fodder. It's too bad that all children can't experience safety and a good environment to grow up in. I don't see the UN doing much about this either.. if anything they are making it worse.
