He then gets his food and now it seems he doesn’t even want to eat it. He starts to scream and cry, and I really don’t know what brought this on. His dad tries to calm him down and when he does Grayson got up and tried to climb back over the gate but was unsuccessful. After this he went back to the kitchen table and does eat some of his hotdog while drinking out of the sippie cup. After his meal he started to play with his dad a little bit.
When we think of war, we often think of soldiers, tanks, weapons and battlefields. But most wars breach boundaries, affecting civilians, mostly women and children. Soldiers, guerrillas and paramilitaries use tactics such as rape, fear, murder and pushing people off their land or manipulate and force them into doing shocking things that scar them for life. This poem was written about the events that have been going on countless decades in human history, the issue of child soldiers. Generally speaking, child soldiers are anyone under the age of 18 participating in contemporary conflicts and who is a member of combatant force representing anything from rebels to a structured government.
This event leads to the Capture of the Williams family and about a 100 of their neighbors. The Deerfield raid was one of the largest raids to be executed and they also had the largest number of captives taken than any other raid. The Native Americans who participated in this raid spoke French and were converted Catholics. The prisoners were asked to march almost 300 miles to Canada but many died along the way, Mrs. Williams included. Among the Williams family captives was the six year old Eunice Williams.
But it also tells of how Beah was rescued, rehabilitated, and eventually adopted by an American family. It is this book and the story it tells that has made Beah’s face synonymous with the fight to end the use of child soldiers. “He [Ishmael Beah] not only lived through that but he was part of it,” said Cassandra Siebert who is a freshman studying human rights at Webster. “You hear statistics everyday but this is one name, one face, and an actual full story. It gives people a more personal view.” This personal view is what Beah had aimed for.
These numbers do not include the 1.3 million displaced Africans and more than 40,000 rapes that are increasing with each passing breath. Ishmael Beah, an African who was once a part of one of the many civil wars inside Africa has a perspective of war that no other, author or producer has ever been able to reproduce in the way Ishmael Beah has done. With the creation of his memoir “A Long Way Gone” Ishmael has told the world about the cruelties and injustices committed upon boy soldiers. The attributes that Ishmael Beah uses in his memoir “A Long Way Gone” are simple. The personal bond that Ishmael creates between himself and the audience makes Ishmael a profound and unique storyteller.

Ginsberg tells with excitement about the husbands, wives and babies who are shopping together as families. In opposition to the families, Ginsberg introduces Lorca, another deceased homosexual poet (Ginsberg 1290). Through the juxtaposition of the happy families against Lorca, who is standing alone by himself, the poet emphasizes the isolation which homosexuals experienced during the 1960s and prior (Newman). The poet attempts to highlight the views of a different sexual orientation by using two homosexual poets in his poem. Ginsberg refers to Whitman as “childless, lonely old grubber, poking among the meats in the refrigerator and eyeing the grocery boys” (Ginsberg 1290).
Since then, the United Nations estimates more than 190,000 people have died in the clashes between President Bashar Al-Assad's government and rebel forces who want him out.” As you may know, Bashar Al-Assad is the person behind all this is.

It begins with negotiating the release of children and their physical separation from armed forces and groups. The family tracing and reunification phase that follows is a time-consuming and requires resource-intensive effort. Beyond the challenge of locating the families and communities of lost children, successful reunification must also address the challenge of reconciling children and their communities, especially when children may have committed atrocities in their hometowns. In order to ensure a proper reintegration and protection of former child soldiers and reconciliation within communities, the question of accountability has to be addressed. Children who suffered from the conflict should be able to seek justice for the violations of their rights including through their participation in judicial and non-judicial processes.
The military managed to take back most of the capital city, and over time some militias gave into the peacekeepers mainly due to the threat to their leaders. Soon after, the US returned home in 1995. With the departure of the US, militias and gangs caused civil war for many years after. In 2006, a terrorist organization known as ‘Al-Shabab’ (literally translated to ‘The Youth’) began overthrowing Somalia’s capital city; Mogadishu.
