How many dystopian and post-apocalyptic worlds have been written about where children feared to play in the sun and had to hide in the shadows instead? That’s what our country has actually brought to these children, a world away from the sun, away from the flowers, a world of dim light and shadows. These kids won’t fly kites or look up at big fluffy clouds on a bright day because they’re afraid of getting killed. Drone attacks are terrorism and our country has become a monster.
