  • Powerful and moving...

    Excellent, well written episode about the abuse of children in Africa, how they are forced to become soldiers after witnessing the deaths of family members. Very verbally graphic and rightly so (definitely not for the squeamish). This episode brings this very tragic situation to the forefont, especially on how the United States deals with these people which is not always the way we would like to see it happen. Good to see Stephanie March (Alexndra Cabot) back in the saddle, using her legal wit to best of her ability. Cicely Tyson gives a very good performance as the girl's mother. We need more episodes as moving and powerful as this one; hopefully there are some in the works.
