Saving yourself

Saving youself

After going through the horrors of war it's hard to actually save yourself.

"The drugs were wearing off . I craved cocaine and marijuana so badly."

"We got upset day by day and, as a result , resorted to more violence."

The similarity I found between the article and the book was that all the kids who were victims of any war they were in, are far gone when they are found and the help that programs offer can only go so far, and then the kids have to allow themselves to heal in their own way because they all experienced the horrors in different ways we will never understand.
