This is Ishmael Beah now at 36 years old.
He moved to the U.S. in 1998 to finish high school and went to college at Oberlin. He now lives in the United States and here is where he published his book.
The style of writing that Ishmael Beah uses is very different. He didn't think about how to write the book he just typed everything out as it came to mind.
From these videos, I learned a lot more about military exploitation and how it's trying to be prevented today. I think a lot more of the world still needs to be introduced to it though.
Ishmael Beah says that the reality of war is that each side of the war is equally as bad as the other. They both capture children, they both steal food and water and shelter, and they both commit crimes that can never be forgiven.
This video is about how all of this is still happening today and how Ishmael Beah was lucky enough to get out of this situation.
