Transcript of The Element of Travel

The Element of Travel brought forth--> Peace of mind
Starting fresh
Redemption from past sins
Ishmael Beah's A Long Way Gone
Quote from page 194
“It was not easy being a soldier, but we just had to do it. I have been rehabilitated now, so don’t be afraid of me. I am not a soldier anymore; I am a child. We are all brothers and sisters. What I have learned from my experiences is that revenge is not good. I joined the army to avenge the deaths of my family and to survive, but I’ve come to learn that if I am going to take revenge, in that process I will kill another person whose family will want revenge; then revenge and revenge and revenge will never come to an end...”
