Hi Readers,

On V-Day ,I had the opportunity to attend a private screening with my B+C family to watch War Child. This is one of the best powerful documentaries I ever seen. Can you imagine being a soldier at a young age ? Most of us can answer NO . However , Emmanuel Jal can answer YES ! He was a former child soldier who endure alot of pain that affected him mentally, spiritually and physically. He quickly lost his childhood due to being a soldier. As an adult, he tells his story to the world through his film , music,and his memoir.By watching this film, you can feel his pain and say WOW and he is a strong man ! Overall , this movie can make you question yourself can you survive his footsteps. I cannot tell you the details. Your best option is to see this film at At the Faison Firehouse Theater. I highly recommend it
