What Are We Doing To Iraq?

Here's what 13-year-old boys do in the United States. In Iraq, they raise families.

CNN has a must-see video report on Yassir, a 13-year-old who's been working as a shoemaker for 3 years to support his nine younger siblings. According to CNN, "the Iraqi government says that hundreds of thousands of children have lost one or both parents to violence." According to the Iraqi government, there are now 4.5 million orphans in Iraq.
