7/16/08: Children of War

By Jenny Brundin

Salt Lake City, UT – Millions of children grow up surrounded by war, and the number is growing each year. Two University of Utah researchers study how children's moral development is effected by the violence, lawlessness and deprivation in their lives. Is the future of these children just a bleak moral vacuum, or is there hope? Jenny Brundin talks to Cecilia Wainryb and Monisha Pasupathi about children of war.
