-The child's still considered himself a child except he was just turned to a murdering soldier
-As a child soldier holding a gun convinces you that you somehow have power and feel bigger
-When you see these children they expect you to treat them as soldiers or as grown man , they lost there innocent that every child comes with
-A child does not think twice before killing because at a young age they are taught that what they do is good
Psychologically these children are forced to get rid of there innocence so quickly and turn into killers. This changes how they think and how they feel , there giving a sense of power at a age where they should not be having such power.
-Shows a lot about the difference of cultures in the African community and the "American
" community by killing one white man its a great deal but by killing dozens of these children its never looked at twice
The documentary shows how society has evolved so much for them that now it is okay for a child to hold a gun and not only hold it nut be encouraged by adult figures. As stated in the documentary if all this was going on in America it would be at the cover of every news paper.
-There society taught them the word "soldier: itself is not a protector or someone who fights for the right thing, they taught them the word soldier means killer

-Because of the war children felt attacked so it was no surprise that they volunteered as child soldiers , they were out in a situation where they had to choose to kill or be killed
There society majorly differs from the "typical: american society ,american children are provided with education and resources that help us grow up happily. There society pulls most of these kids out of schools , hands them a gun and forces them to kill or die.
