The use and abuse of children is evil


This is a photo that is currently doing the rounds on Facebook and on blog sites (eg Daily Maverick). I don't know if this picture is a fake or not. I do hope the child is pretending to be dead and wasn't really shot by the man in the photo or someone else. However, fake or not it demonstrates how children are used and abused all over the world.

  1. unfortunately, whether fake or not, we know it happens all over the world. Sometimes it might be a child soldier posing over its adult victim. So much more needs to be done by the UN and international community to protect children from war, and yet we are not clean, are we; because we know drone strikes in Pakistan are likely to kill children too.

  2. I was distressed also to read about how British companies are supplying weapons to countries with a record of war crimes.
