Out of War
Who They Are/Their Environment
Have they been threatened?
Events that influenced the person
When he was taking care of Juanita, Johemir found out that her Dad was shot three times by the armed men and then Juanita’s family fled abandoning everything. The shooting of the father made them move because they were afraid that they were gonna be next. If they didn’t move they would have been shot because they knew that the dad was not alone. The death of Johemir’s father influenced them to be part of the peace movement, especially since he was part of their family.
The people in the photo a similar to the ones who killed Juanita's dad.
They continue to fight against the armed men because they believe that kids should not be in the army. On the last page it says how the kids marched through the streets protesting on child soldiers. It stopped traffic because there were so many people marching. Over 300 children marched to show that they didn’t want to fight. I’m kind of surprised that they didn’t open fire on the kids because they were protesting.
