A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier - Ishmael Beah

This quote was added by duncedd
Some people tried to hurt us to protect themselves, their family and communities... This was one of the consequences of civil war. People stopped trusting each other, and every stranger became an enemy. Even people who knew you became extremely careful about how they related or spoke to you.
