The Rebels

by Ambrose Davies, age 17, Government Rokel Secondary School Freetown, Sierra Leone

The rebels entered in Freetown on Tuesday at mid night so they attack on Wednesday. They behave so badly, killed people cut legs, hands and burnt people's houses and destroyed all our properties and also put our education behind. In addition, since they have destroyed my education and everything we own I went with them in the bush for many months. When I return home I found out that my mother was dead but I met my uncle who took me back to school.
