After he is abducted from his Ugandan boarding school and forced to become a child soldier in the Lord's Resistance Army, Jacob's only comfort and the hope that helps him survive is the thought that recording his experiences will help others in his situation. He trusts that, if he can only share his story and bring attention to the horror and violence that he witnesses and is forced to commit, the world will send help to stop those who use children to carry out their crimes.
