It is about military effectiveness. If civilians do not have confidence in you as peacekeepers your mission will not succeed. And while this training is clearly only a beginning, it is the only way that we will begin to address the problems: working nation by nation to raise standards and increase effectiveness.feedback

The reality is that women and girls, as well as men and boys, can still be raped with near-total impunity in conflict zones around the world. The reality is that a peacekeeper may be the first person one of those traumatized girls encounters after their abuse. As peacekeepers you need to be absolutely clear what to do, because that girl will be frightened, especially of a man with a gun. How do you approach her, will affect her whether she is able to begin to recover or if more damage will be done.feedback

But really the only way I know to raise them is to really listen. It's perhaps the most important thing any parent can do.

She would have thrived as a grandmother. I know how much she would have contributed to their lives and I am sad they will miss out on that. I would give anything for her to be with me at this time.

And to help them have a broader view of the world.feedback

Maddox is happy to be back in his country.feedback
