The long road to recovery

The UN's IRIN news service has a series of articles on the troubles many Sierra Leonians are having, five years and one democratic transfer of power after brutal, nearly decade long uncivil war.

From young boys who already admit to having no future to war orphans haunted by hideous memories to a young teenager suicidal because of his horrific experiences during the war, it's a poignant reminder that it may be tragically easy to start a war or otherwise engage in an orgy of violence in the name of fake noble goals, recovering from such horror takes much, much longer.
