Beth Jung's curator insight, February 16, 2014 8:14 AM

This article is about the child soldiers in Africa. The children are forced to be in the army. Before they are taken, Africans kill their family or make them kill their own families. Africans force the children to drug so that they don't feel pain, and also teach them how to kill people with no fear. This article adds on to my knowledge to my last week's article about how economy plays a role on child labor and how serious the problem is in Africa today. Child soldier is another type of child labor. This also tell me that there are a lot of conflicts in Africa and the children are involved in those conflicts. I feel very thankful for the good environment that I'm living in. I am very glad that I'm not one of those unfortunate children in Africa. I do not know how I can be a help to this problem except spreading awareness.

Brooklyn protests news thrives on social media; ignored by mainstream

On Wednesday night, 46 people were arrested in Brooklyn, New York for protesting the death of 16-year-old Kimani Gray. According to reports, the third consecutive night of demonstrations was sparked by the teen's autopsy and revealed that the NYPD shot the teen a total of seven times, but three of the bullets were in his back. So why isn't this story on national news? Lori Harfenist of The Resident brings us more on how she heard the news on social media.
