Archie saw his family killed through a crack in a door. He was abducted into a rebel army at the age of nine and forced to commit atrocities and laugh when he did. This photograph was taken when he was fourteen, after the war had ended and he was living with a foster family in Monrovia. Archie told Ofir that he has two hearts, a good heart and a bad heart.

The boy with dreadlocks sold marijuana to Archie’s foster father while Ofir was at the house in Monrovia.

    A beautiful smile after a hard life. My ode to another man trying to make a difference in the lives of children like these: Machine Gun Preacher. Thanks for the photos and thoughts. ~Regards, Dan
