Child, Victim, Soldier: The Loss of Innocence in Uganda
The rebel group in Uganda known as the Lord's Resistance Army has abducted children, boys and girls, to serve as soldiers and to provide sexual services. Torn from their families in the dead of night and forced to carry out terrible acts, including murdering family members and other children, they bear terrifying scars on their bodies, minds, and souls. Fr. Dunson lets their stories be heard, often in their own voices, telling of their hurts and needs, but also of their hopes for the future. His text, accompanied by powerful photographs taken by Gerald Straub, also reflects on the presence of evil in the world and the need for healing.
