Tears of a Soldier



"When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers. This ancient proverb of the Kikuyu people, a tribal group in Kenya, Africa, is as true today as when the words were first spoken, perhaps thousands of years ago. Its essence is simplicity-when the large fight, it is the small who suffer most. And when it comes to war, the smallest, the most vulnerable, are the children." Excerpt from When Elephants Fight by Eric Walters.

I hope that you have gained valuable information about the life of children soldiers by participating in this webquest, and will continue to share this information with others.  I encourage you to think about the issues of injustice, inhumanity, and indifference long after you leave my classroom and continue to seek ways to make the world a better place.
