A Long Way Gone Shania woods

It was Ishmaels first time being out of Sierra Leone and in another country. He no longer had to worry about weather or not his story would be unknown. It was also seeing snow in such a big city.

One night Ishmael and Esther were looking up at the sky and talking about what they saw. Ishmael includes the quote that his grandmother told him when he was a child. He wanted answers and explanations about what was going to happen in the future and answers for what he has done in the past.

I have never seen a city like New York. It is extremely cold but I like it anyways. My first conference went very well and I made a lot of friends during it. We all talked about what is was like for child soldiers (and in my case) what it was like to be a child soldier.
