Kids as soldiers

At El Alamein Military Cemetery, Egypt, where hundreds of German soldiers lie, I had read an interesting statement penned by Einstein: The best argument in favour of peace is the tomb of a soldier. In Afghanistan, where there is hardly a family that hasn’t regretted at least one death as a cause of continuous warring, it seems peace needs stronger motivation. IN the morning, I see Shahrak teachers making the kids march as if they were going to war. Probably I missed part of the context, since I don’t really understand the language, but the image was shocking…
