child soldiers: Happy To Be Alive

Happy to be alive

“I hope the war ends soon,” John says - although he thinks his family will take years to recover as are they are displaced with no livestock.

“I don’t have any big dreams for the future. I just want to finish studying and get a job.”

With one of his few smiles he adds: “I am very happy… I have come back alive.”

John recently returned home, and will be returning to his studies.
