I feel like children should not be used as soldiers because it's cruel to them their so little and young. Most children aren't strong so it's like torture to them. A Long Way Gone compared to The Hunger Games: In the Hunger Games the children are used to kill people that haven't done anything to them, In A Long Way Gone the children kill people because they killed their family and have destroyed their homes. In The Hunger Games they choose people by having two big glass balls with all the kids eighteen and under names in them. In A Long Way Gone they choose children to be soldiers by if they see a child they take them in and turn them into a soldier. I think the way the men in A Long Way Gone turned children into soldiers is horrible and cruel, getting them addicted to drugs and pumping their adrenalin up.
