Child soldiers is a world-wide issue. Child soldiers are just not in Africa. They are in South America and Asia. Children everywhere are being pulled out of a normal life and into a traumatizing one. Some charities are providing psychological help for the kids, but once a child gets chosen to be a soldier there is not much they can do. This is important to me because I am also a kid and I know that if I was thrown into the battlefield, I wouldn’t like it and I would be traumatized for life.
The things that I used to create my hexagon are: red construction paper, pictures of child soldiers and toys for children . I used the red construction paper to represent the blood shed during the wars that involved child soldiers. I used pictures to show how horrible it is to be a child soldier and what you are exposed to at a very young age. Lastly, I put children toys on my hexagon to show what the child soldiers are missing since they got their childhood robbed from them.
