Abstract:

"Sunday Obote was only seven when he was kidnapped by the Lord's Resistance Army, a rebel group in northern Uganda. His life abruptly changed from peaceful village life, where he fished and hunted with his friends, to the savagery of the LRA. Sunday was turned into a child soldier trained to kill on demand, even killing other children." "Torn from their families in the dead of night and forced to carry out terrible acts, hundreds of children like Sunday bear terrifying scars on their bodies, minds, and souls. Fr. Dunson lets their stories be heard, often in their own voices. His text, accompanied by powerful photographs, also reflects on the presence of evil in the world and the desperate need for healing."--Jacket.
