The first rule for survival when you’re a child soldier carrying an AK-47 is kill or be killed. But after you look at the blood of your first victim, you realize two things: one, you hate yourself. And two, there is no turning back.
For twenty-three years, Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, abducted more than sixty thousand children, forcing them to be soldiers in his war against the Ugandan government, to kill or be killed.
It’s time for this evil to end.
Forgiveness or revenge?
Peace or hate?
Flowers or stones?
From 1986 to 2009, Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, abducted over 60,000 children and forced them to be child soldiers in his fight to take over the Ugandan government.
Children as young as 10 years were taken and forced to kill or be killed.
This is their story.
“Arrows, Bones and Stones compellingly reveals the struggle faced by those trying to overcome childhood trauma. For youth abducted and forced to fight as child soldiers, escape is not the end of the story, but just the beginning." - Patrick Reed, Director/Producer, Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children
