Response to Capital Punishment
I too found the execution of the boy to be the most striking scene in the movie. I agree that no minor should ever be executed or take part in war. This portrays the lack of morality and laws during time of war. I also find it disheartening that the United States, along with Iran, are the only two countries to execute minors. If we, as a nation, execute minors, will we start sending minors to war? Many Americans are opposed to a draft, myself included, but if it prevents minors from participating in the war, I would be all for it. Under no circumstances should innocent minors be forced to fight in a war. Although disturbing, this movie did address major issues, and was overall a good film.
