Children of War

An article this morning from the BBC just broke my heart. "The International Criminal Court is accepting supporting evidence of children's drawings of the alleged crimes committed in Darfur. Rights group Waging Peace collected the drawings from refugees in Chad."
If you are not familiar with the situation in Sudan & Darfur, there is a really great documentary called "God Grew Tired Of Us" that tells the story from the perspective of several boys-turned-men.
But these pictures. May none of our children ever draw images like these. No child should ever experience this. What is wrong with us?
