Children at War
In this issue of ABBA-PAI, we talk about how the life experience of most Brazilian children living in favelas is comparable to the war environment. The comparison is not forced. Brazilian children exposed to both domestic violence and gun violence in the communities in which they live have developed trauma similar to the trauma of war veterans. It is a trauma generated by experiences that threaten their very existence. Unfortunately, in the face of this, all that is left for these children is to fight or to make war. If you want to better understand this cycle of violence and how to fight it, we invite you to read this new edition of ABBA-PAI, which you can read here.
