A horrible and incredible story. The way it's told, it seems inevitable that a boy will become a killer in that situation. We all like to think we could never do that, but after reading this I think we all probably would. It makes me even more motivated to oppose war in all its forms, to save my son (any everyone else's) from such a fate.
