A Long Way Gone

In chapter thirteen, the author tells about the child soldiers getting addicted to drugs. The reason why they were hooked on drugs is because the army thought that the boys will have less self-consciousness and have more courage when going into battle. The child soldiers will also become more dependant on the army.

When the old man said,“We must strive to be like the moon” he said that to remind people to always be on their best behavior,be grateful, and to be good to others. This advice can apply to me, but not most of the time since I don't get in that much trouble.

In chapter eleven, Ishmael's patience increases with Gasemu's slow pace hinting that something can be happening in the village. Once the group discovered that something bad did happen, this angered Ishmael. People were killed, but because of Gasemu's slow pace, Gasemu saved Ishmael.

The author tells events that led to Ishmael and his group to steal food in chapter four. I don't judge them because it is a basic survival instinct that all animal's have.
