"I just want one real friend"

This is real life. This is the world of a 13 year old boy in Baghdad.

I often try to put a human face on the ugly world we find ourselves in and its always gut wrenching.
A month ago gunmen came to his school and shot three guards during his last period. The U.S. Military came and the students ran out the door to catch their rides. That day he made it home safe. Tomorrow, he doesn't know.

The burden he carries is not fit for a 13-year-old. But this is not an R-rated movie; you can't keep the children out.


Via Baghdad.
