Child Soldiers

“Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” ― John F. Kennedy 

On this 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's death one thing that can be brought forward to our children is that in order to make an opinion; one must Think, Ask Questions, Consider the facts, and then form their opinions with deliberation, without sensor or fear and be thankful that they live in a country and time striving to allow them to do just that.

Yet this Generation, just as Each Generation before is plague by hate.  Child Soldiers,in America are grown by parents as shown here; while child soldiers in africa and other parts of the world are stolen by strangers. All are wrongly deprived of their childhood.   

The comparison is not as harsh as one may think because around the world a child wrongly separated from a loving parent is a crime against all of humanity... 

“What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents.”
