But have we ever stopped to think of the careers? They were trained to do this. Knowing they would most likely die. What kind of parents use their kids as a business? Trained to make them rich, or die. The children from 12 were poor and starving and weak. But most of them had their parents. Loving parents who would die to get some food to bring home for them.

Or maybe, just maybe, was there a heartless mother back home, realizing she killed her child from the day he was born?
shit just got deep
