I look at child soldiers as pathetic. The army has to hide behind child soldiers because no one want's to kill a young boy. I see it as cheating, cruel, and a child shouldn't be forced to kill people, let alone seeing people killed just that is really messed up. Some are even drugged up to get them to obey and listen there brain washed pretty much. I am against any country having child soldiers, no child should have to grow up in an army.
Rwanda- This country has been put through some terrible things. Things you would never think of and will never see in America. People have watched there family members get gasoline poured on them and burned, husbands and brothers have watched there wives, moms, and sisters be raped and they weren't able to do anything about it. A genecyde.

Shattering Glass by Gail Giles is a medium size story around 200 pages on high school kids, Young (the main character) Lance, Bob, Rob, and Simon Glass. Young, Lance, Bob, and Rob are all popular friends and Simon Glass is the geek of the school. The four friends make it there mission to make Simon Glass the most popular kid in school. They will make an attempt at this by changing the way Glass dresses, walks, talks, eats, drinks, sleeps, and breathes.
This book is alright I like it but it's not modern because theres really no groups in high school like popular kids and geeks. I see it as people hang out with people like them. There isn't a popular group and a geek group. But it is pretty interesting and i'm not a book kind of guy but I sometimes read it in my free time.
