Rationale:
I chose these pictures because they show people what is really going on. Some of these pictures show the way these children are used to such a horrible lifestyle. How they play with guns and other weapons like toys. The picture with the man buying a gun at a vending machine shows how easy it is for these children to get guns. The pictures show the children working as soldiers, when people look at these images, I want them to be thankful that they are not in those situations.
