Ryan Bruce's insight:

This relates almost directly to the same event that my book does, child soldiers are used to fight the government or fight the people

Ryan Bruce's insight:

Child Soldiers is not unheard of  but is very much so inhumane. First sentence of this article talks about a 13 year old boy killing his first person. This relates almost hand in hand with AK, my book about a child soldier who is also 13 at the time the story begins. This article also connects to parts of along way gone, mentioning World Vision a place for soldiers to become civilians again.

Child Soldiers International

Child Soldiers International | World Lit final Book Project | Scoop.it
Child Soldiers International works to prevent the recruitment and use of children as soldiers, to secure their demobilisation and to ensure their rehabilitation and reintegration.
Ryan Bruce's insight:

This website is dedicated to child soldiers, and trying to rescue them. It talks about what a child soldier is, why there used along with things your support can help with. it also gives you some inside look on the situations these children are put into. and how they end up being forced into armed combat.

Ryan Bruce's insight:

In Ak the book is about Paul fighting a corrupt government; trying to get his father, who was kidnapped for various reasons. This article is about Kony 2012, a corrupted government, that many people never even knew about until a campaign started in 2012. A more common day use of child soldiers is found here, shocking the entire world that this cruelty still exists

Ryan Bruce's insight:

My scope was the Role elders play in tribes, Elders are basically looked up to as leaders. Many people of the tribe go to elders to ask for advice along with some guidance in their decision making. In this article surrounding areas are dealing with bandits, Elders from each place meet up, forwarding lists of suspected criminals, Showing how much power elders have on the decisions in a tribe.

AK

Ryan Bruce's insight:

Ak, is a story of a child soldier named Paul, Who lives in Nagala. Paul goes from being a kid to a warrior, fighting the corrupt politicians and government  at the age of 12. He learns combat from elders; in return, the warriors cook and clean for them. His father is taken away from him and captured, So Paul accompanied by two friends make their way into the city. Paul is determined to help his adoptive father. He goes through the story with his metal Ak. Which is the only thing that keeps his head in place during all of the commotion.
